The boiler pressure is 140 lb., and the tractive force per lb.
Not quite so 'tractive, too pale and want animation, when you're calm.
As the period drew near for the opening of the line, the question of the tractive power to be employed was anxiously discussed.
The boiler pressure is 140 lb., and the tractive power per lb.
The tractive power of any unit increases vastly when it is used—often as high as twenty-five times.
The tractive force per pound of mean cylinder pressure is 88.4 lb.
The dynamometer car is constructed to indicate the tractive effort of the engine, the speed, and the distance travelled.
At a speed of 2.2 meters per second the tractive stress, K, is from 10 to 11 kilogrammes.
To the mind of the mechanical engineer, having in view the ordinary coefficients of tractive ability, there is no remedy for this.
As may be conceived, the tractive stress is, as a consequence, considerably diminished.
