"The object of this thesis is to investigate the measurement of compressed air and to determine its consumption in rock drills. Our intention at first was to run more exhaustive tests on the drills, but due to the large amount of work necessary in rigging up the apparatus and computing results, we found it necessary to curtail our work to representative types of the hammer and the piston machines. We regret being unable to give more complete data in regard to the drills, but hope to point out fields for future work since, with the increased facilities now at hand, such work may be more satisfactorily carried out"--Introduction, page 1.
