This scarce text comprises a relatively small volume containing everything engineers and students of engineering need to know about steam turbines. Intended as manual for the practical engineer designing, operating or manufacturing steam turbines, this text will also briefly explains directly some of the important problems a qualified steam engineer may encounter and must have knowledge on. Originally intended for the author’s assistants, it was later decided that it could greatly benefit the field in general and was published accordingly. Although old, a great deal of the information contained herein still has relevance today and, as such, this text remains a must-have for students, practitioners, and enthusiasts alike. Originally published in 1908, we proudly republish this scarce text with an introductory biography of the author.
