The Original Water Garden Fountains of the Historical Past

The Original Water Garden Fountains of the Historical Past As originally conceived, water fountains were crafted to be practical, guiding water from creeks or reservoirs to the inhabitants of cities and villages, where the water could be used for cooking, washing, and drinking. In the years before electricity, the spray of fountains was driven by gravity only, usually using an aqueduct or water supply located far away in the surrounding mountains.Original Water Garden Fountains Historical Past 0329157436.jpg Inspirational and impressive, big water fountains have been built as monuments in nearly all cultures. Simple in style, the first water fountains didn't appear much like modern fountains. Designed for drinking water and ceremonial functions, the initial fountains were very simple carved stone basins. Rock basins as fountains have been discovered from 2,000 BC. The force of gravity was the energy source that operated the oldest water fountains. Located near aqueducts or creeks, the practical public water fountains supplied the local populace with fresh drinking water. Fountains with embellished Gods, mythological beasts, and creatures began to show up in Rome in about 6 BC, built from natural stone and bronze. The people of Rome had an intricate system of aqueducts that provided the water for the many fountains that were located throughout the urban center.

Hydro-Statics & Wall Fountains: The Fundamentals

Hydro-Statics & Wall Fountains: The Fundamentals All liquids in a state of equilibrium exert force on the materials it comes in contact with. The force applied falls into one of two categories: external force or hydrostatic energy.Hydro-Statics & Wall Fountains: Fundamentals 1264168831876.jpg The pressure level applied by the liquid against a level wall is identical at each point where it makes contact with the wall. An object that’s completely submerged in a fluid that’s in equilibrium experiences vertical power on all points of its body. This is also understood as buoyancy or the Archimedes’ principle. Hydrostatic pressure is made by hydrostatic force, when the force exerts itself on a point of liquid. These principles are applied to the containers used by plumbing, wells, and fountains.
The Role of Hydrostatics In The Design Of Outdoor Fountains All liquids in a state of equilibrium exert pressure on the materials it comes in contact with.There are two forms, hydrostatic load or external forces.The force applied by the liquid against a level wall is equal at each point where it makes contact with the wall.... read more
