Title: Mechanical World Year Book 1956

With the compliments of The North British Steel Foundry Ltd., Bathgate. Slight foxing to end inside cover. Slight wear to corners of cloth. Slightly sunned spine to cloth. Red cloth with black lettering. A very good copy for its age. Preface: This year the Mechanical World Year Book presents an entirely new section on gas turbines. The previous section served a useful purpose in recent years by providing a fundamental thermodynamic approach. Now that experience of gas turbine design has accumulated and become more widespread, it is though that a more advanced account of current practice is required. Accordingly a concise section on design procedure has been specially prepared. This presents data and detailed methods for use in dealing with the principal components. Additional or revised material appears in the sections or tables on materials, power plant, limites and fits, keys, cutting speeds and feeds, and an addition has been made to the tables giving properties of the circle. Detail revision has been carried out in numerous other places, and in this connection the help afforded by users of the book in sending in suggestions is acknowledged with pleasure. These suggestions are very helpful and are always welcomed. The 1956 edtion contains, among much more useful information and data, new material on electronic devices. 362 pp and adverts.
