Pamphlet, Hydraulic Tables and Other Data

<< >>
Usage conditions apply
Manufacturers compiled and distributed tables for designers who would use their products. This 32-page pamphlet, published in August, 1931, by the Southwark Foundry and Machine Company Division of the Baldwin-Southwark Corporation, brought together data “of particular interest and value” to those “engaged in the use of hydraulic equipment - particularly those structures involving the use of hydraulic pressures for load-producing purposes.”
Tables included give:
1. the circumferences and areas of circles of diameters ranging from 1/64” to 98.”
2. conversions between standard and metric units of length, area, volume, velocity, weight, pressure, and power.
3. the capacities of hydraulic rams
3. plunger displacements
4. wire and sheet metal gauges
5. properties of steel pipes and bolts
6. the specific gravity of diverse substances
7. strength of diverse materials
8. friction losses in fluid flow
9. properties of various cross sections of pipe
10. properties of diverse beams
11. methods of finding moments of inertia
12. trigonometric formulae
13. properties of springs
14. graphs for estimating the weights of solid and hollow cylinders.
