"In the course of this year's work under the auspices of the Ludlow-Saylor research fellowship many problems of interest to the wire weaving industry have been investigated. Some of these problems have no academic novelty; others were not completed and have been laid aside for future investigations. The major problem for investigation this year was to discover a method by which the weavability of wire might be evaluated. A second problem for investigation was to discover the causes of some of the defects of wire and wire cloth. In addition to presenting the results of these investigations, this thesis represents an attempt to compile, in an orderly fashion, some of the background material that has been obtained by the author in the last year with regard to wire and the weaving of wire. It should e pointed out that the presentation of this thesis is complicated by having to be intelligible to two audiences; it should make the mechanical problems of the wire weaving industry intelligible to the metallurgist, and it should make the vocabulary of metallurgy intelligible to the wire weaver"--Introduction - Definition of Objectives, page 1.
