Excerpt from The New International Encyclopedia, Vol. 1 HE work which is now given to the public after years of diligent preparation is not a new T edition or revision of the International Cyclopedia. It is not based (ipon that or upon any other publication. The comparatively small portion of text which has been retained unaltered from the International Cyclopedia and incorporated in these volumes has been so retained because it has successfully stood the test of searching criticism, and because the Editors regard it as satisfying the most exacting requirements. This, however, is the full extent of the new Encyclopaedia's obligation to the Old. The present work has been planned and executed as a wholly independent and original undertaking. It represents the practical knowledge gained from an editorial experience of many years. It embodies the results derived from a critical study of all the most famous works of refer enee which have at any time appeared in Europe or in the United States.

Genre: History

Excerpt from The New International Encyclopedia, Vol. 4 Another matter which has to be carefully pro vided for is a supply of water to the highest reach, or summit level, as it is usually called; the reason for this being that this reach is constantly losing its water to the reaches below, and this loss must be supplied by streams or reservoirs so located as to discharge into the summit level. Distances being equal. A canal which connects two points with a single reach is preferable to one with two reaches. Indeed, a considerable increase in length is allowable to permit the canal to be constructed without a change of level. The reason for this is that transferring a boat from one level to another by locks or the other usual means is a slow opera tion, and furthermore, locks are very expensive to construct compared with a similar length of the ordinary channel. The engineer carefully in tegrates these factors of time and cost and selects the route between the various points he wishes t0'connect which will give the minimum time of transit at the minimum cost. In deciding upon the cross-section to be given to the chan nel, two things have to be considered, viz. Its dimensions and its form. As regards dimen sions, they are determined largely by the size of the vessels with which it is proposed to navigate the canal. The width must be at least sufficient to permit two vessels of the largest size to pass each other without fouling. Another influencing factor is that the resistance to traction is greater in a restricted waterway. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
