- Balancing of marine engines and the vibration of vessels
- vol. 53, 8 April 1892, pp. 434-436
In discussing Schlick's paper of 1884, A. F. Yarrow had shown that the propeller of one of his torpedo boats could be removed without apparent effect on the hull vibration, which must have therefore been solely due to unbalanced machinery. He also described a method of balancing reciprocating engines by means of "bob weights" in addition to the usual rotary weights. Eccentrics placed in convenient positions on the crankshaft operated the bob weights.
