Not illustrated. 1865 Excerpt: ...data as regards the resistance to submerged bodies, but supply none to assist us in the design of a ship, for one of the points of extremest importance in a ship's form, namely, to pass the particles of an incompressible fluid easily to the surface to ensure diffusion, is necessarily untouched. In other experiments the motion has been a falling weight, with a varying momentum, and attached at points representing neither those of the "point velique," nor the propelling force of the screw nor paddle. And in all these exists this normal defect--that they have been made in smooth water. However valuable, therefore, they may be for particular purposes, they are entirely inapplicable to the conditions of a ship at sea, and throw little or no light upon the problem of " making a passage;" and the practical designer who takes data determined by such experiments as his guide, builds upon hollow ground 5 for being defective and illusory, they require much tentative and practical skill for even the most partial application. Again, without in the slightest degree undervaluing the labours of mathematicians, as regards scientific construction, I venture to affirm that it would be unsafe for a builder to model his ship altogether according to their deductions. Scientific analysis must go hand in hand, not with exceptional experiments, but with facts carefully collated from the wide field of practical every-day use; for it is only by such experience, that the best terms of an absolutely necessary compromise can be properly ascertained.
