Elements of Hydraulics free pdf Excerpt from Elements of Hydraulics The remarkable impetus recently given to hydraulic development in this country has caused the whole subject to assume a new aspect. Not only is this apparent in new and improved construction details, but in the scientific study which is beginning to be given a subject which seemed to have crystallized into a set of empirical formulas. Such comprehensive plans as those recently undertaken by the State of New York and the Dominion of Canada for the systematic development of all their available water power, indicates the extent of the field now opening to the hydraulic engineer. The extent and cheapness of the natural power obtained not only from the development of existing streams but also from the artificial pondage of storm water is sufficient to convince even the most casual observer that no phase of conservation will have a more immediate effect on our industrial development or be more far reaching in its consequences. The present text is intended to be a modern presentation of the fundamental principles of hydraulics, with applications to recent important works such as the Catskill aqueduct, the New York State barge canal, and the power plants at Niagara Falls and Keokuk. Although the text stops short of turbine design, the recent work of Zowski and of Baashuus is so presented as to enable the young engineer to make an intelligent choice of the type of development and selection of runner. In order to make the book of practical working value, a collection of typical modern problems is added at the end of each section, and a set of the most useful hydraulic data has been compiled and is tabulated at the end of the volume.
