The purpose of the author in the preparation of this work has been to provide help for the operative or practical marine engineer, either for the man who has already entered the profession, but who may wish to perfect himself more fully in many branches of the subject, or for the applicant for the lowest round of the ladder, or for the young man whose attention is first turning to this field, and who may wish some simple and fairly complete presentation of the subject from the practical standpoint. The treatment of the subject throughout has thus been with a view to simplicity, but without undue sacrifice of generality or exactness of statement. It has been the desire of the author to bring the subject, so far as treated in the present work, within the grasp of those who have not had the advantages of higher mathematical and engineering education, but who may wish, nevertheless, to fit themselves for positions of honor and responsibility in the field of operative marine engineering. ---Preface
