LONGMANS, GREEN, AND CO.
This little book does not profess to be a treatise on hydraulics, but relates to those calculations which have to be made-many of them very frequently, and others perhaps more rarely, in connection with works of hydraulic engineering.
It is hoped that the complete book may be found useful to those practical engineers, assistants, and draughtsmen, who are often engaged in carrying out such calculations, as well as to engineering students; and with this object in view, it has been written in the language of practical men rather than in that of the schools or of the mathematician. In all cases, it has been the author's desire to discuss the rational groundwork of these problems in the simplest and plainest terms; and the student who happens to be accustomed to a more rapid mathematical treatment may perhaps find these preliminary discussions unnecessary; but they may nevertheless be acceptable to other students, whose training has been of a more practical kind, and whose ideas have been cast in a somewhat different mould.
Some apology should perhaps be offered for the way in which diagrams B and C have been drawn in Fig. 24. If the diagrams had been inverted they would have better indicated the negative character of the quantities; but the chief thing to
