Page 7 - Do. using a length shorter than the distance between the eye-plates, to obtain gaugings unaffected by the concentration of load at those points. The deflections were measured at the middle of the post. An arm carrying a pointer was clamped to the post. The pointer, moving over the face of a dial, indicated the amount and direction of deflection. Loads were gradually applied, measuring the compressions and deflections after each increment; returning at intervals to the initial load to determine the...

Page 230 - Corr6ird, 1861), but without the name of author or editor. Wade commences with the following statement : The comparative softness, or hardness of metals, is determined by the bulk of the cavities or indentations, made by equal pressures ; the softness being as the bulk directly, and the hardness, as the bulk inversely (p. 259). The form of the indenting instrument was a pyramid on a rhomboidal base. The longer diagonal of the base measured 1", the shorter •2", and the height of the pyramid -1".
