Engineering Factors in the Ventilation of Metal Mines

Description: From Introduction Purpose and Scope of Report: "In the belief that the quickest and cheapest method of obtaining effective ventilation of metal mines with regard to air conditions that promote efficiency, health, and safety is through more general application of the engineering factors involved rather than by trial and error and this method of attacking ventilation problems will be facilitated by a simple, concise statement of these factors and the methods of using them, an attempt is made in this bulletin to present the subject of metal-mine ventilation to mine operators in a practical way."

Extinguishing and Preventing Oil and Gas Fires

Description: From Introduction: " As the subject of oil and gas is necessarily broad, no attempt is made in this bulletin to treat it exhaustively; rather the bulletin aims to point out what has been done by operators in the past, and to describe various fire-prevention methods and fire-fighting apparatus which are being used or adopted by many of the larger oil companies. These methods and apparatus, it is believed, if universally employed by operators, will largely decrease the present enormous annual losses."

Contributions to the Data on Theoretical Metallurgy: [Part] 9. The Entropies of Inorganic Substances. Revision (1940) of Data and Methods of Calculation

Description: From Introduction: "This bulletin originally was planned as a second revision of the first member of this series, the first revision (249) having appeared in 1936; however, because of requests for the explanatory, section of the first bulletin from those teaching thermodynamics, it was decided to combine the information in the first bulletin and its revision with the data that have appeared since 1935 and to repeat the explanatory material in somewhat more detail. The purpose of this bulletin is therefore to give the available values of the entropies at 298.1 degrees K. of the elements and inorganic compounds, together with enough explanation of the methods employed in calculating entropies to make the results comprehensible."

Pennsylvania Mining Statutes Annotated

Description: From Author's Explanation: "This bulletin is intended to include every legislative enactment of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania relating to the mining and mineral industries.
