Էջ 315 - An' singin' like the Mornin' Stars for joy that they are made; While, out o' touch o' vanity, the sweatin' thrust-block says: 'Not unto us the praise, or man - not unto us the praise!' Now, a' together, hear them lift their lesson - theirs an' mine: 'Law, Orrder, Duty an' Restraint, Obedience, Discipline!

Now, volatilisation is the most cooling process of nature, by reason of the quantity of heat which is directly converted from the sensible to the latent state. So long as any of the bituminous constituents remain to be evolved from any atom or division of the coal, its...

Էջ 114 - Nursey pointed out that the pressure put upon the metal greatly increased its strength, and at the same time rendered it still more homogeneous. Some tests made at Woolwich Arsenal with Delta metal bars produced by extrusion showed a tensile strength of 48 tons per square inch with 32*5 per cent, elongation on 2 inches, as against 38 tons per square inch tensile strength and 20 per cent, elongation of rolled bars of the same metal.

The weight of hull is, through rational construction and reduction of the scantlings, lessened as much as the strains will permit, in some cases even in excess of a sufficient margin of safety. Considerable reduction in the weight of the ships' hulls was effected by the restricted use of wood. The splinters of wood scattered by penetrating shells were always dreaded, the experiences drawn from the battle at Yalu have clearly shown how dangerous such combustible material as wood is...
