Synopsis: A comprehensive and well illustrated volume explaining the scientific principles of the action of prime movers or machines for obtaining motive power and demonstrating how these principles are  applied to practical questions.  The introduction covers principles, the mechanical contrivances common to all prime movers, the laws of strength of Materials; Part One covers the use of muscular strength to obtain motive power; Part Two concerns prime movers driven by the motion of water and air including water pressure engines, waterwheels, turbines, and windmills; and the third and major part concerns engines driven by the mechanical action of heat, especially steam engines.  The authors examine the phenomena of heat, the mechanical action in engines, the laws of combustion and properties of fuel, and the principles  of fuel economy  in  laws of heat action  producing motive power (principles of thermodynamics) to various engines especially  steam engines of all varieties;  the nature and action of the parts of furnaces and boilers and the mechanism of steam engines. Contents: -- Introduction: Of Machines in General.  (Of resistance and work.  Deviating and centrifugal force.  Of effort, energy, power, and efficiency.  Of dynamometers.  Of brakes.  Of Flywheels.  Of regulators and governors in general.  Summary of principles of the strength of machines).  Part One: Of Muscular Power.  (General principles.  Power of men.  Power of horses and other beasts.)
