Elevation and Stadic Tables

Nature volume 63, page 514 (28 March 1901) | Download Citation



HYDRAULIC tables showing velocities for various channels and slopes are given in this volume, as well as tables “for obtaining differences of altitude for all angles and distances, horizontal distances in stadic work, &c., with all necessary corrections.” The book has been prepared and published because there is a need for such a handy manual in the field work of surveying and in practical problems connected with canal construction. As such its usefulness is assured.
