Selected Papers by L.D. Porta Volume 1 Tribology and Lubrication

cover photo

A further volume of Papers by Dante Porta, transcribed and edited by Chris Newman with help and advice from David Wardale and Shaun McMahon; I salute them as photostated copies of Porta’s handwritten papers are not the easiest of documents to read.

This volume (244 pages) contains 5 papers, 2 on Steam Cylinder Tribology, one on Cooling of Piston Valve Liners and one on Mechanical Design of Piston Valves, which includes Improvements to the Mechanical Design of Piston Valves and Pistons.

Effectively unillustrated, but includes numerous technical drawings, sketches etc, and is paperback.

Code No. 017695, ISBN 9781644406496, $65.00
