Hydro-Statics & Water Fountains: An Overview

Hydro-Statics & Water Fountains: An Overview When in equilibrium, liquid applies power to its container or any other material it comes in contact with. There exist two types of force, hydrostatic energies and external forces. When pressing against a level wall, the fluid applies equal force at different points on the wall. Liquid in equilibrium will employ vertical pressure at every point of an object’s exterior when that object is fully immersed in the liquid. We refer to this concept as Archimedes’ principle, which deals with the forces of buoyancy. Generally speaking, hydrostatic pressure on a point of liquid is a product of the hydrostatic force exerted on it. These principles are applied to the containers used by plumbing, wells, and fountains.

Modern Garden Decor: Garden Fountains and their Roots

Modern Garden Decor: Garden Fountains Roots 5380256609.jpg Modern Garden Decor: Garden Fountains and their Roots The dramatic or ornamental effect of a fountain is just one of the purposes it fulfills, in addition to providing drinking water and adding a decorative touch to your property.

The central purpose of a fountain was originally strictly functional. People in cities, towns and villages received their drinking water, as well as water to bathe and wash, via aqueducts or springs nearby. Up to the late 19th century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and more elevated than the fountain so that gravity could make the water flow down or jet high into the air. Fountains were an optimal source of water, and also served to decorate living areas and memorialize the artist. Bronze or stone masks of animals and heroes were frequently seen on Roman fountains. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden designers included fountains in their designs to mimic the gardens of paradise. King Louis XIV of France wanted to demonstrate his dominion over nature by including fountains in the Gardens of Versailles. The Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries were glorified with baroque style fountains constructed to mark the place of entry of Roman aqueducts.

Urban fountains built at the end of the 19th century served only as decorative and celebratory adornments since indoor plumbing provided the necessary drinking water. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity enabled fountains to deliver recycled water into living spaces as well as create unique water effects.

Embellishing city parks, honoring people or events and entertaining, are some of the purposes of modern-day fountains.
