This book is easily the most comprehensive work on steam technology
available. Wonderfully written, it covers everything in a clear and
logical fashion. An invaulable tool for any engineer.
The newly released edition of Steam/its generation and use
details advances in the production of steam and the utilization of
all types of fuels.
Steam is the longest continuously published engineering text of
its kind in the world. The first edition of this book appeared in
1875, not long after an engineer named Stephen Wilcox, Jr., applied
his knowledge of water circulation theory to perfecting a new and
safe boiler concept. Today, B&W is an internationally
acknowledged leader in all aspects of steam generation, from
fundamentals and research, to engineering and manufacturing,
service and construction, and protecting the environment, and their
knowledge is shared through the publication of Steam.
