Abstract

"Every one is either directly or indirectly concerned with two types of power plants. The steam power plants of Kansas City furnish us with light, power, and transportation. In this day these are indispensable. The gas, or internal combustion engine power plant furnishes transportation, mainly and some power. Each of our big buses has an internal combustion engine power plant under the hood.

It will be our aim here to show how the internal combustion engines operates and discuss some of the types in use in automobiles and stationary power plants. When one contemplates the immense amount of power developed by the internal combustion engine in this country and how important power is in our daily life, the subject becomes extremely interesting"--Principles of Operation, Article I.
