Introduction to Hydrostatics

Introduction to HydrostaticsIntroduction Hydrostatics 17395187441.jpeg All liquids in a state of equilibrium exert force on the materials it comes in contact with. There are two forms, hydrostatic load or outside forces. The liquid applies the exact amount of force to the numerous spots that it comes in contact with, provided that the surface is level. Liquid in equilibrium will apply vertical pressure at every point of an object’s exterior when that subject is fully submersed in the liquid. This is also understood as buoyancy or the Archimedes’ principle. Hydrostatic pressure is formed by hydrostatic force, when the force exerts itself on a point of liquid. These ideas are applied to the containers used by plumbing, wells, and fountains.

The Main Characteristics of Classic Greek Statuary

Main Characteristics Classic Greek Statuary 3412147863327288.jpg The Main Characteristics of Classic Greek Statuary The primitive Greeks developed the first freestanding statuary, an impressive achievement as most sculptures up until then had been reliefs cut into walls and pillars. Most of these freestanding sculptures were what is known as kouros figures, statues of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. Representing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were crafted to appear rigid and always had foot in front; the males were vigorous, strong, and nude. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. During the Archaic period, a big time of changes, the Greeks were developing new types of government, expressions of art, and a larger awareness of people and cultures outside Greece. The Arcadian wars, the Spartan invasion of Samos, and other wars between city-states are good examples of the kinds of clashes that occurred frequently, which is consistent with other times of historical change.

Where did Landscape Fountains Originate from?

Landscape Fountains Originate from? 4720158121595137713.jpg Where did Landscape Fountains Originate from? A fountain, an incredible piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also propel water high into the air for a noteworthy effect.

The primary purpose of a fountain was originally strictly functional. Water fountains were connected to a spring or aqueduct to provide potable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Until the late 19th, century most water fountains operated using gravity to allow water to flow or jet into the air, therefore, they needed a supply of water such as a reservoir or aqueduct located higher than the fountain. Fountains were not only utilized as a water source for drinking water, but also to decorate homes and celebrate the designer who created it. The main components used by the Romans to build their fountains were bronze or stone masks, mostly illustrating animals or heroes. Throughout the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden planners included fountains to create smaller depictions of the gardens of paradise. Fountains played a considerable role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. To mark the entryway of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts entered the city of Rome

Since indoor plumbing became the norm of the day for fresh, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely decorative. Impressive water effects and recycled water were made possible by switching the force of gravity with mechanical pumps.

Modern fountains are used to adorn public spaces, honor individuals or events, and enhance recreational and entertainment events.
