A man of many talents, Leonardo spent most of his time as a psychologist, zoologist, linguist, botanist, anatomist, geologist, musician, sculptor, architect, critic, civil engineer, mechanical engineer, and a hydraulic engineer. CAuny тHE NOTEB оок Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks show that the subject of hydraulics was his most studied and recorded topic. 24 Da Vinci traced the velocity distribution 20 across the stream's channel by releasing the rod af different places in the stream's cross-section. He conducted the first empirical studies of streams and Htheir velocity distribution, using a weighted rod held afloat by an inflated animal bladder. ΤHE HYDRA ULIC SA W During his lifetime he was commissioned for several projects that used the manipulation of water, often in canals. One of these was a hydraulic saw. The above illustration is a reconstructed model of the hydraulic saw in Milan's National Museum of Science and Technology. rexroth A Bosch Company VHS Hydraulic Components Ltd is a leading Bosch Rexroth Distributor in the UK and are also the only Bosch Rexroth Mobile System Integrator in the UK.
