Excerpt from An Elementary Course of Civil Engineering
IN preparing a second edition of this work, the translator has endeavoured to make such alterations and additions, as have been suggested by the experience of scientific gentlemen, and the improve ments of the day. A most important addition will be found in the definition of all the technical terms used in the work; which are placed at the heads of the chapters in which they are used. The Second Part, on Roads, Canals, 820. Will be found materially improv ed, by eu alteration in the arrangement, as well as by numerous and important additions; particularly, by the introduction of Mr. Mc Adam's theory and practice of road making. The article on Har bours and their accessories has been so altered and enlarged as to be adapted to the United States and its improvements - particularly, by clear and full details upon the construction of Docks and Marine Railways, Sea Walls, 81c. In fine, the whole has been so revised and improved, as to render it worthy of the patronage heretofore bestowed upon it by Schools and Academies, and subservient to the Civil Engineer, Mason, Brick maker, Bridge builder, 8m.
We particularly invite the attention of Masons to the principles herein explained for building walls, to support embankments and pressures of all kinds, as the only safe and economical mode ever pointed out.
