Excerpt from The Calorific Power of Fuels: Founded on Scheurer-Kestner's Pouvoir Calorifique Des Combustibles; With the Addition of a Very Full Collection of Tables of Heats of Combustion of Fuels, Solid, Liquid and Gaseous
The books on fuels hitherto published in English, contain only a few scattered facts regarding their calorific powers, how they are obtained, and the practical use made of them. Quite frequently these books are consulted for these facts, and the information they do contain is utilized to its fullest extent. It was thought that a book especially devoted to this subject containing all the reliable data might be of interest, and in furtherance of that idea this book is published.
