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.
