This book originated from a request by a number of engineers that a thesis should be prepared to combat the harm which was being done to engineering practice by diverse unsound theories. The author, who has written the only two previous textbooks devoted to this subject and who has had some thirty years experience of design and research, has found that the simplest design methods, with slight modification, give the most statistically accurate results and thereby not only result in economies of capital expenditure but greatly reduce drawing-office costs. The thesis contains mathematical and statistical proofs, and typical design calulations are given.
