These notes were added to from time to time until they became too bulky for use in typewritten form. The first thought of the author was to have the notes printed as such for private use only but it was finally decided to publish them in the form of a text book. In order to do this it was necessary to expand them and in doing this certain investigations and writings of other authors were consulted and drawn on for material without which a book of this nature would be valueless. The book is written with the assumption on the part of the author that the reader has studied thermodynamics and mechanics. However, the author thought best to include in the book a review of the parts of thermodynamics which are absolutely essential to a clear understanding of the theory of internal combustion engines. A lso, at certain places in the book, the author has digressed far enough to derive and explain certain indispensable relations in mechanics, not that they present anything new but because of a possibility that the reader has allowed them to become hazy from lack of use. The author wishes to express his thanks to those manufacturers who kindly furnished drawings, photographs and data and to those publishers and authors who permitted their work to be used in the text of the book. He also expresses his thanks to his associates who assisted him in the preparation of drawings and particularly toP rofessor A. M. Greene, Jr., for his valuable aid and advice on |X)rtions of the book. R, L. S.
