This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...causes friction over the area B'A also. The experiments indicate for the value Foi rolling friction an expression of the form where W is the weight, r the radius of the cylinder, and a constant depending on the nature of the materials in contact. For hard surfaces, this constant of rolling friction /x' is very much smaller than the constant of sliding friction /a. 199. On the subject of plane statics the student may consult in particular the recent work: E. J. Routh, A treatise on analytical statics, with numerous examples, Vol. I., Cambridge, University Press, 1891; also G. M. Minchin, A treatise on statics with applications to physics, Vol. I., 3d ed., Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1884; I. Todhunter, Analytical statics, 5th ed. by J. D. Everett, London, Macmillan, 1887; B. Price, Infinitesimal calculus, Vol. III.: Statics and dynamics of material particles, 2d ed., Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1868. For problems, see also W. Walton, Collection of problems in illustration of the principles of elementary mechanics, 2d ed., Cambridge, Deighton, 1880. Numerous applications to civil and mechanical engineering will be found in J. H. Cotterill, Applied mechanics, London, Macmillan, 1884; W. J. M. Rankine, A manual of applied mechanics, 9th ed. by E. F. Bamber, London, Griffin, 1877; A. Ritter, Lehrbuch der technischen Mechanik, 5th ed., Leipzig, Baumgartner, 1884; J. Weisbach, Mechanics of engineering, Vol. I., translated by E. B. Coxe, New York, Van Nostrand, 1875; and in works on graphical statics. On friction, see in particular: G. Herrmann, The graphical statics of mechanism, translated by A. P. Smith, 2d ed., New York, Van Nostrand, 1892; R. H. Thurston, Treatise on friction and lost work in machinery and mill work, New York, Wiley, 1885; J. more
