The instrument consists of three rulers, A B and D, figs 4, which are united by a common centre-screw a, and have a thumb screw d, which fixes them fast at any angle at which they may be placed This compression serves a dual purpose in that it also raises the temperature of the trapped steam and of the cylinder, thus reducing the condensation of the freshly admitted steam.

Even though other manufacturers offered improved indicators for use on the newer, faster, engines, the Victoria and Albert catalog stated in that the Richards indicator, "except for high-speed engines, is still in general use.

Like the conventional side-lever engine however, grasshopper engines were disadvantaged by their weight and size. This type of engine had two identical, vertical engine cylinders arranged side-by-side, whose piston rods were attached to a common, T-shaped crosshead.

This compression serves a dual purpose in that it also raises the temperature of the trapped steam and of the cylinder, thus reducing the condensation of the freshly admitted steam. The direct-acting engine shown in Fig. The first practical steamboat was built on the Clyde, inby William Symington, for Lord Dundas.

In years to come, he would bring in several triple-expansion engine-powered ships on only one cylinder, and several others on two. If the pencil was simply on the end of a lever, its the path would be an arc and would produce a distorted diagram.

Freed increasingly from these design constraints, engineers were able to revert to simpler, more efficient and more easily maintained designs.

To illustrate this I will use one of the sketches of a Watt indicator shown in Figure 1. By the following weekend, the single-cylinder Little Buck was ready to assist Big Buck with the heavy Saturday night load. Richards to design a new indicator that would be capable of giving accurate results on the high-speed engines that he was designing and building.

Trunk engines, however, did not work well with the higher boiler pressures that became prevalent in the latter half of the 19th century, and builders abandoned them for other solutions.

Siamese[ edit ] The Siamese engine, also referred to as the "double cylinder" or "twin cylinder" engine, was another early alternative to the beam or side-lever engine.
