    Power, Speed, and Form: Engineers and the Making of the Twentieth Century

    By David P. Billington

    Power, pace, and Form is the 1st available account of the engineering in the back of 8 leap forward concepts that remodeled American existence from 1876 to 1939--the phone, electrical energy, oil refining, the auto, the plane, radio, the long-span metal bridge, and development with strengthened concrete. starting with Thomas Edison's method to generate and distribute electrical strength, the authors clarify the Bell cell, the oil refining approaches of William Burton and Eugene Houdry, Henry Ford's version T vehicle and the reaction by means of basic automobiles, the Wright brothers' plane, radio concepts from Marconi to Armstrong, Othmar Ammann's George Washington Bridge, the strengthened concrete buildings of John Eastwood and Anton Tedesko, and within the Thirties, the Chrysler Airflow automobile and the Douglas DC-3 airplane.

    those suggestions used uncomplicated numerical rules, which the Billingtons combine with brief narrative money owed of every breakthrough--a specific and potent approach to introduce engineering and the way engineers imagine. The e-book indicates how the simplest engineering exemplifies potency, financial system and, the place attainable, splendor. With Power, velocity, and Form, educators, first-year engineering scholars, liberal arts scholars, and common readers now have, for the 1st time in a single quantity, an available and readable background of engineering achievements that have been very important to America's improvement and which are nonetheless the rules of contemporary life.
