Page 42 - The High-Pressure Steam Engine. THE HIGH-PRESSURE STEAM ENGINE ; an Exposition of its Comparative Merits, and an Essay towards an Improved System of Construction, adapted especially to secure Safety and Economy. By Dr. ERNST ALBAN, Practical Machine Maker, Plau, Mecklenberg. Translated from the German, with Notes, by Dr. POLE, FRS, M.

Part I. PURE MATHEMATICS — comprising Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Mensuration, Trigonometry, Conic Sections, Properties of Curves.
Page 27 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING COMMUNICATIONS. The Communications should be written in the impersonal pronoun, and be legibly transcribed on foolscap paper, about thirteen inches by eight inches, the lines being three-quarters of an inch apart, on the one side only, leaving a margin of one inch and a half in width on the left side, in order that the sheets may be Lound.
Page 27 - But should the Council refuse, or delay the publication of such Paper, beyond a reasonable time, the Author thereof shall have a right to copy the same, and to publish it as he may think fit, having previously given notice, in writing, to the Secretary of his intention. No person shall publish, or give his consent for the publication of any communication presented and belonging to the Institution, without the previous consent of the Council.
Page 144 - That the iron columns, beams, and brick arches be of strength sufficient, not only to support a continuous dead pressure, but to resist the force of impact to which they are subject by the falling of heavy goods upon the floors. That in order to prevent accident from the columns being melted by intense heat in the event of fire in any of the rooms, a current of cold air should be introduced into the hollow of the columns, from an arched tunnel under the floors. There is no doubt that if the second...
Page 50 - PrintWorks, in the neighbourhood of Wilmslow, in Cheshire. Close-bucketed wheels labour under great difficulties when receiving the water through the same orifice at which the air escapes, and in some wheels the forms and construction of the buckets are such as almost entirely to prevent the entrance of the water, and to deprive the wheel of half its power. These defects may be easily accounted for where the water is...
Page 26 - NOTICE. It has frequently occurred, that in Papers which have been considered deserving of being read and published, and have even had Premiums awarded to them, the Authors may have advanced somewhat doubtful theories, or may have arrived at conclusions at variance with received opinions. The Council would, therefore, emphatically repeat, that the Institution must not, as a body, be considered responsible for the facts and opinions advanced in the Papers, or in the consequent Discussions ; and it...
Page 305 - ... of weight and space, in a very eminent degree; these advantages will, in some respects, be slightly increased by augmenting the steam pressure to 10 or 12 Ibs.
Page 54 - Water-wheels (Breast), with close Soles and ventilated Buckets. The preceding statements have been principally confined to the form of bucket, and description of waterwheel, adapted for low falls. It is therefore necessary to describe the best form of breast-wheels for high falls, or those best calculated for attaining a maximum effect on falls varying from one-half to threefourths of the diameter of the wheel. This is a description of water-wheel in common use, and is generally adopted for falls...
Page 305 - Ibs. per square inch. We consider steam of this pressure to be well adapted for the exigencies of the service ; we believe it is calculated to secure all the important advantages of power...
