Draughtsmen, Botanists and Nature: The Construction of Eighteenth-Century Botanical Illustrations

This ebook is the 1st in-depth research of eighteenth-century botanical illustrations. Its findings provide a totally new perception into the operating practices of the botanists and medical draughtsmen of this era. the writer describes the several construction phases of those illustrations. For the 1st time, the writer provides a powerful description of the way botanical illustrations built, ascertaining the standards that drove this approach.

At present the weight has been supposed to act in a direction perpendicular to the fibres; that is, the different deflec­ tions to which the beam may be exposed in consequence of the different positions of the weight have not been taken into con­ sideration ; and it has been before explained, that it is not necessary to introduce the latter datum while we are merely contemplating the comparative strengths and strains of beams for architectural and mechanical constructions, in which the deflections are always inconsiderable, but that they are essentially necessary in the comparison of experiments on the ultimate strength; and, therefore, when we treat of those comparisons, it may be necessary to modify some of the preceding results.

In fact, in every experiment that I made, after the complete fracture in the middle, the two fragments had been so little strained at the points of fixing, that they soon after recovered their correct rectilinear form. Parent and Belidor, in their experiments, and indeed ail experi­ mentalists except Musschenbroeck, make the strength of their beams, when fixed at the ends, to the same when merely sup­ ported, in the ratio 3 to 2 ; but theorists have always made the ratio that of 4 to 2, as above stated, which is obviously erroneous.

The first formula will also apply to a beam fixed at any given angle of inclination; observing only, that the angle A , in this case, will represent the angle of the beam's inclination, increased or diminished by the angle of its deflection, according as its first position is ascending or descending; or rather, it will denote the angle of the beam's inclination at the moment of fracture. In all these cases, as has been before stated, when it is only intended to apply the results to the common application of timber to architectural and other purposes, the angle of deflection may be omitted, and the equations then become simply, = b, ad ' IW 6a~d ~ 2 2 2 4a d m nW lad 9 2 = s, 2 mnW = S.
