Airplane Engine Encyclopedia

Excerpt from Airplane Engine Encyclopedia: An Alphabetically Arranged Compilation of All Available Data on the World's Airplane Engines The Airplane Engine Encyclopedia is intended to serve as a reference book for those who are interested in any phase of airplane engine design and construction. Owing to the large number of airplane engines which have already appeared, the descriptions are necessarily condensed and contain only the important and distinguishing characteristics that are known of each one. Some references are of nothing more than historic interest; however, at the time of going to press, no engine is known to the author to which reference has not been made. The widely distributed sources of such information are usually inaccessible to the average engineer owing to their international derivation, being in many cases unknown; and when known, extremely cumbersome for reference purposes. The majority of airplane engines have been described in various aeronautical works and periodicals, but often as a basis for a discussion on design. This has been purposely avoided in this work since the subject will be very thoroughly treated in subsequent volumes. Much repetition of experiment on identical types or details occurs through lack of knowledge in regard to the efforts of other workers on similar lines, and results in a waste of inventive skill which might otherwise be turned to more constructive ends. This work will be justified if it in any way should direct engine development along useful lines, and assist in avoiding methods that have long since proved unsound. The author cannot, of course, be held responsible in all cases for the reliability of the sources of the information used, and it is inevitable that some types, particularly those experimented with more or less privately, have been left unmentioned.
