HAZEUIURST FIELD 

MINEOLA, L. I. 



As there are numerous young men training in this 
country, both in ground schools and at flying fields for 
the aviation service, and as much of this will probably be 
performed in France, it seems desirable to compile a 
brief glossary of commonly used aviation terms in both 
French and English to facilitate intercourse between the 
pilots and mechanics speaking different languages who 
work together in the present emergency. 

These lists are enlarged from a briefer series prepared 
originally for use in teaching classes at the Signal Corps 
Aviation School, Mineola, L. I. The illustrations accom- 
panying the text should make everything clear about 
which any doubt could exist. As no definitions are given, 
the booklet is more in the, nature of a glossary or list 
of words than a dictionary, and is intended only for use 
of those already familiar with aviation. Some of the 
equivalents may not be literally correct, but are selected 
with a view to listing only terms in common, everyday 
usage. 

The painstaking work of Lieut. Paul Montariol, of the 
French Flying Corps, assigned as instruction officer at 
Mineola, L. I., has been of great value in furnishing 
French equivalents and insures that these will conform 
to the accepted practice abroad. It is believed that this

compilation will be of some value in securing closer co- 
operation and more intelligent discussion of aviation 
subjects between members of our oversea aviation forces 
and our non-English speaking allies.

Metric System and English Equivalents. 

The Metric System is based on the Meter which was designed to be one 
ten-millionth (rsreVTOs) P?rt f the earth's meridian, passing through Dunkirk 
and Formentera. I^ater investigations, however, have shown that the Meter 
exceeds one ten-millionth part by almost one part in 6400. The value of the 
Meter, as authorized by the U. S. Government is 39.37 inches. The Metric 
system was legalized by the U.S. Government in 1866. 

The three principal units are the meter, the unit of length, the liter, the 
unit of capacity, and the gram, the unit of weight. Multiples of these are 
obtained by prefixing the Greek words: deka (10), hekto (LOO), and kilo (1000). 
Divisions are obtained by prefixing the I<atin words: deci (fa), centi (rfo)i and^ 
milli (TJS^). Abbreviations of the multiples begin ; with a capital letter, and. 
of the divisions with a small letter, as in. the following tables : 

Measures of Length

NOTE The gram is the weight of one cubic centimeter of pure -distilled 
water at a temperature of 3'J.2P.; the kilogram is the weight of 1 liter of 
water; the ton is the weight of 1 cubic meter of water.

THE WHOLE FIELD OF MECHANICAL MOVE* 

MENTS COVERED BY MR. HISCOX'S. 

TWO BOOKS 

We publish two books by Gardner D. Hiscox that will 
keep you from "inventing" things that have been done be- 
fore, and suggest ways of doing things that you have not 
thought of before. Many a man spends time and money, 
pondering over some mechanical problem, only to learn, after 
he has solved the problem, that the same thing has been 
accomplished and put in practice by others long before. Time 
and money spent in an effort to accomplish what has al- 
ready been accomplished are time and money lost. The 
whole field of mechanics, every known mechanical movement, 
and practically every device is covered by these two books. 
If the thing you want has been invented, it is illustrated in 
them. If it hasn'fl been invented, then you'll find in them 
the nearest things to what you want, some movement or 
device that will apply in your case, perhaps; or which will 
give you a key from 'which to work. No book or set of 
books ever published is of more real value to the inventor, 
draftsman or practical mechanic than the two volumes de* 
scribed below. 

MECHANICAL MOVEMENTS, POWERS AND 
DEVICES. By GARDNER D. Hiscox. This is a collection 
of 1,890 engravings of different mechanical motions and appli- 
ances, accompanied by appropriate text, making it a book of 
great value to the inventor, the draftsman, and to all read- 
ers with mechanical tastes. The book is divided into eighteen 
sections or chapters, in which the subject-matter is classified 
under the following heads: Mechanical Powers; Transmis- 
sion of Power; Measurement of Power; Steam Power; Air 
Power Appliances; Electric Power and Construction; Navi- 
gation and Roads; Gearing; Motion and Devices; Control- 
ling Motion; Horological; Mining; Mill^ and Factory Appli- 
ances; Construction and Devices; Drafting Devices; Miscel- 
laneous Devices, etc. Fourteenth edition. 400 octavo pages.

MARINE ENGINES AND "BOILERS, THEIR 
DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION. By DR. G. BAUER, 
LESLIE S. ROBERTSON and S. BRYAN DONKIN. In the words 
of Dr. Bauer, the present work owes its origin to an oft 
felt want of a condensed treatise embodying the theoretical 
and practical "rules used in designing marine engines and 
boilers. The need of such a work has been felt by most 
engineers engaged in the construction and working of marine 
engines, not only by the younger men, but also by those of 
greater experience. The fact that the original German work 
was written by the chief engineer of the famous Vulcan 
Works, Stettin, is in itself a guarantee that this book is in 
all respects thoroughly up-to-date, and that it embodies all 
the information which is necessary for the design and con- 
struction of the highest types of marine engines and boilers. 
It may be said that the motive power which Dr. Bauer has 
placed in the fast German liners that have been turned out 
of late years from the Stettin Works represent the very best 
practice in marine engineering of the present day_. The work 
is clearly written, thoroughly systematic, theoretically sound; 
while the character of the plans, drawings, tables, and sta- 
tistics is without reproach. The illustrations are careful re- 
productions from actual working drawings, with some well- 
executed photographic views of completed engines and boilers.

TURBINES 



MARINE STEAM TURBINES. By DR. G. BAUER 
and O. LASCHE. Assisted by E. Ludwig and H. Vogel. 
Translated from the German and edited by M. G. S. Swallow. 
The book is essentially practical and discusses turbines in 
which the full expansion of steam passes through a number 
of separate turbines arranged for driving two or more shafts, 
as in the Parsons system, and turbines in which the complete 
expansion of steam from inlet to exhaust pressure occurs in 
a turbine on one shaft, as in the case of the Curtis machines. 
It will enable a designer to carry out all the ordinary calcu- 
lation necessary for the construction of steam turbines, hence 
it fills a want which is hardly met by larger and more theo- 
retical works. Numerous tables, curves and diagrams will be 
found, which explain with remarkable lucidity the reason 
why turbine blades are designed as they are, the course which 
steam takes through turbines of various types, the thermody- 
namics of steam turbine calculation, the influence of vacuum 
on steam consumption of steam turbines, etc. In a word, 
the very information which a designer and buildec- of steam 
turbines most requires. Large octavo, 214 pages. Fully il- 
lustrated and containing 18 tables, including an entropy chart.
