Basic Machines and How They Work

Dover Publications - Important concepts, and techniques are clearly illustrated in more than 200 diagrams, machine components, drawings, and cross-sections that reveal inner workings — all of these help to clarify even further an already clear and well-organized presentation. Beginning with the simplest of machines — the lever — the text proceeds to discussions of the block and tackle pulleys and hoists, herringbone, wheel and axle, the screw, spur, the inclined plane and the wedge, spiral, bevel, worm, and different types of gears simple, etc.

. A chapter on the concept of work discusses the measurement of work, with explanations of the uses of scales, force, gauges, balances, friction, and pressure, and efficiency; this is followed by investigations of power, and barometers. Every concept is clearly defined, and discussions always build easily from elementary theory to specific applications familiar to anyone with the slightest interest in mechanics.

Basic Machines and How They Work - Naval training schools, this book can be used to great advantage as a basic text in mechanical engineering in standard technical schools, and it will be immensely valuable even to lay readers who desire a basic knowledge of mechanics.
