Excerpt from The Gas Engine This book is not intended as a complete treatise on the subject. The object of the author is to present the principles governing the salient features of gas-engine construction and operation in as simple a manner as possible, and to that end the comprehensive discussions of the thermodynamic properties of gases and of hypothetical heat-energy cycles, of the character commonly found in text-books, have been avoided. Since the pressures, temperatures, and energy transformations which occur in a gas engine cylinder cannot be adequately explained without the use of algebraic equations which appear complex to a beginner, such equations have been employed in that connection, but their use has been restricted to a single chapter. This chapter may be omitted without sacrifice by readers who wish merely general, rudimentary information, but not by real students of the subject.
