Overview of Hydrostatics

Overview of Hydrostatics Liquid in a state of equilibrium exerts pressure on the objects it contacts, including its container. There are two forms, hydrostatic load or external forces. When pushing against a level wall, the fluid applies equal force at different points on the wall. When an object is thoroughly submerged in a liquid, vertical force is applied to the object at each and every point. This applied force is known as buoyancy, while the notion itself is known as Archimedes’ principle. Liquid acted on by hydrostatic force is then subject to hydrostatic pressure at the point of contact. Examples of these containers can be found in the way a city circulates water, along with its fountains and artesian wells.

The Influence of the Norman Invasion on Anglo Saxon Landscaping

The Influence of the Norman Invasion on Anglo Saxon Landscaping Anglo-Saxons experienced extraordinary modifications to their daily lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans.Influence Norman Invasion Anglo Saxon Landscaping 6211946226043286.jpg The Normans were much better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But yet there was no time for home life, domestic design, and decoration until the Normans had overcome the whole realm. Castles were more basic constructions and often constructed on blustery hills, where their tenants devoted both time and space to practicing offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, commonly situated in the widest, most fertile hollows. The calm practice of gardening was unrealistic in these dismal bastions. Berkeley Castle, perhaps the most pristine model of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture, still exists in the present day. The keep is thought to date from the time of William the Conqueror. As a method of deterring attackers from tunneling beneath the walls, an immense terrace encircles the building. On one of these terraces sits a stylish bowling green: it is covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is formed into the shape of rough ramparts.

The Genesis Of Outdoor Fountains

The Genesis Of Outdoor Fountains The incredible architecture of a fountain allows it to provide clean water or shoot water high into air for dramatic effect and it can also serve as an excellent design feature to enhance your home.Genesis Outdoor Fountains 5375474617336.jpg

Originally, fountains only served a practical purpose. Water fountains were linked to a spring or aqueduct to supply potable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Until the late 19th, century most water fountains operated using the force of 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 an excellent source of water, and also served to adorn living areas and memorialize the designer. Roman fountains often depicted imagery of animals or heroes made of metal or stone masks. To illustrate the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. The fountains seen in the Gardens of Versailles were intended to show the power over nature held by King Louis XIV of France. To mark the entrance of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the construction of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts arrived in the city of Rome

Urban fountains built at the end of the 19th century served only as decorative and celebratory ornaments since indoor plumbing provided the essential drinking water. Amazing water effects and recycled water were made possible by replacing the power of gravity with mechanical pumps.

Modern-day fountains serve mostly as decoration for public spaces, to honor individuals or events, and enhance entertainment and recreational gatherings.

Ancient Greece: Cultural Sculpture

Ancient Greece: Cultural Sculpture 50495376757.jpg Ancient Greece: Cultural Sculpture Sculptors garnished the elaborate columns and archways with renderings of the gods until the period came to a close and more Greeks had begun to think of their religion as superstitious rather than sacred; at that point, it grew to be more common for sculptors be paid to depict ordinary people as well. Portraiture started to be commonplace as well, and would be embraced by the Romans when they defeated the Greeks, and on occasion well-off households would commission a depiction of their progenitors to be positioned inside their grand familial burial tombs. The usage of sculpture and other art forms varied through the years of The Greek Classical period, a duration of artistic growth when the arts had more than one objective. Greek sculpture is possibly appealing to us at present because it was an avant-garde experiment in the ancient world, so it doesn't make a difference whether its original function was religious zeal or artistic pleasure.
