Filled with every method of turning water into rotary horsepower. This book is not about the hydraulic power like what makes garbage trucks and construction equipment function. In this sense is we are talking about water power. It is incredible in its depth on water turbines and the whole variety of wheels that are in this field. It covers ALL of the paddle wheels, overshot, undershot, small, large, optimized and simple ones, from highly balanced water turbines to the most efficient Pelton wheels.
