Science For Coalmining Students
by H. Morton, D. S. Morton
Publisher: The Technical Press 1952
Number of pages: 274
The book, which is interesting, instructive and wide in scope, is the result of many years of experience in teaching science to mining students on the part of one of the authors and several years' practical experience underground by the other. Mining students have long felt the want of a textbook of science dealing with their own particular problems, particularly from the physical point of view. Consequently the book should prove very useful to candidates taking the various examinations for firemen, overmen and under-managers and to youths entering the industry.

The main purpose of the volume is an exposition of the principal methods of determining latitude, azimuth, and time. Generally speaking, the limit of precision is that corresponding to the engineer's transit or the sextant.

The book systematically elaborates the theoretical foundation, methodology and fields of application of extension engineering and presents application cases. The characteristics of the book lie in its combination of theory with practice.
This textbook introduces engineering techniques and practices to high school students. The goals of this book are to help students gain an appreciation for engineering and its role throughout human history, and understand what engineers do.
by Nancy G. Leveson - The MIT Press
Revisiting and updating ideas pioneered by 1950s aerospace engineers, and testing her new model extensively on real-world examples, Leveson has created a new approach to safety that is more effective and easier to use than current techniques.
