This is a high quality facsimile of Aircraft Engine Design by Joseph Liston, originally published in 1942.
This text has been assembled to aid technical students in bridging the gap between the point where they have a fairly complete knowledge of the fundamentals of mathematics, mechanics, and machine design, and the point where they are sufficiently familiar with the application of these fundamentals to the design of aircraft engines to enable them to be of value to aircraft engine building industry.
