If sunshine is employed, a sheet of blue glass should be used as a screen to defend the eyes from too much glare, because this glass does not materially weaken the power of the chemical rays to affect the paper. The portrait thus obtained on the calotype paper is a negative one, and from this a positive copy may be...

Seite 367 - In the author's report on the state of the bridge, he noticed what he deemed defects in the construction of the roadway, but as there was no positive symptom of failure, it was allowed to remain. He conceived, that in the anxiety to obtain a light roadway, mathematicians and even practical engineers, had overlooked the fact, that when lightness induced flexibility, and consequently motion, the force of momentum was brought into action, and its amount defied calculation. On the llth of October, 1838,...
Seite 202 - Dantzic deal (Kyanized): the lengths vary from 46 feet to 20 feet, by 11 inches wide and 3 inches thick : they are so disposed, as that the first course of the rib is two whole deals in width, the next is one whole and two half deals, crossing the joints longitudinally as well as in the depth. Each rib consists of fourteen deals in thickness, bent over a centre to the required form, and secured together by oak treenails l\ inch diameter at intervals of 4 feet apart, each treenail traversing three...

Seite 456 - French centreings. As the arch rose from the springing, the crown of the centreing was loaded with stones, to prevent it rising and altering the shape of the arch. The cost of the entire aqueduct, which was about 21 miles long, with all the immediate and collateral works, and including the reservoir, was two millions and a half sterling. The communication was accompanied by three elaborate drawings of the general construction and details of the aqueduct, with the manner of carrying the stones. May...
