Roma mühendisliği ve mimarisinin diğer bir muazzam örneğide su kemerleridir. bu su kemerleri sayesinde kilometrelerce öteden şehre su sağlanır ve su sarnıçlarında toplanan sular pişmiş kilden yapılmış borularla şehre dağıtılırdı.⁣

su kemerlerinin inşası sırasında fotoğrafta gördüğünüz ok ile işaretlediğim çarklı vinç sistemi kullanılırdı. çarkın içine işçiler yerleştirilir ve çarkı döndürdükçe vinç yukarıya doğru hareket ederdi. evlerimizde beslediğimiz muhabbet kuşları veya hamsterların çevirdiği çark gibi düşünebilirsiniz. ayrıca roma mühendisleri suyu en verimli şekil şehre taşımanın yolunun 100 metrede 1 metrelik eğim ile sağlanacağını düşünmüşler ve uygulamışlardır. eğim daha fazla olursa su bir noktada kurur, fazla olursa su taşar ve şehre yeterli miktarda su taşıyamaz.⁣

🇬🇧another great example of roman engineering and architecture are the aqueducts. thanks to these aqueducts, water was supplied to the city from miles away and the water collected in the water cisterns was distributed to the city by pipes made of baked clay.⁣

during the construction of the aqueducts, the wheeled crane system that i marked with the arrow in the photo was used. workers were placed inside the impeller and the crane would move upwards as it turned. you can think of it as a wheel turned by budgerigars or hamsters that we feed in our homes. in addition, the roman engineers thought that the way to carry water to the city in the most efficient way would be provided with a slope of 1 meter at 100 meters and applied. if the slope is higher, the water dries at some point, if it is too high, the water overflows and cannot carry enough water to the city. ⁣

In a maiden race at #aqueduct, secretariat was sixth at the start, then fourth, then first by a half a length as he assumed command in mid-stretch before cruising to a four-length victory. it was the first win for the promising colt on this date in 1972. 🐎 #memorymonday

Segovia su kemeri

ms 1. yüzyılın ikinci yarısı boyunca inşa edilmiş roma su kemeri. 20. yüzyıla kadar frío nehri'nden kente su sağlamıştır. yapının günümüze ulaşmış kısmı, maksimum 28,5 metre yüksekliğinde ve ana bölümde yaklaşık 6 ek metre derinliğinde durmakta. uzun ve iki katlı arkadlarının sütunları ve kemerleri, az miktarda harç ile veya hiç harç kullanılmadan birbirine çok yakın oturtulan sağlam taş bloklardan yapılmış. alt kemerlerin yüksekliği, yapının arazinin dış hatlarına uyarlanmasına göre değişiklik gösteriyor.

İspanya’da türünün en iyi korunan çeşididir ve 1985 yılında dünya mirası listesine alınmıştır.

the aqueduct of segovia

built during the second half of the 1st century ad under the rule of the roman empire and supplied water from the frío river to the city into the 20th century. the remaining portion of the structure stands 28.5 meters tall at its maximum height and nearly 6 additional meters deep in the main section. the pillars and arches of its tall, two-story arcades are made of solid blocks of stone fit closely together with little or no mortar, and the lower arches alternate in height according to the structure’s adaptation to the contours of the land.

widely considered the most well-preserved of its kind in spain and was inscribed on the world heritage list in 1985.

Built for the measly sum of £18,904, the glenfinnan viaduct is an absolute bargain in today’s money! shame about that inflation thing... 🙄

The pont du gard aquaduct ... vers-pont-du-gard
this is an ancient roman aqueduct bridge built in the first century ad to carry water over 50 kilometres (31 miles) to the roman colony of nemausus(nîmes). the pont du gard is the highest of all roman aqueduct bridges.
*
it is the most visited ancient monument in france, listed a world heritage site by unesco, the pont du gard aqueduct remains one of humankind's great masterpieces.
*
a few figures; 48 metres high, it has three vertical rows of arches: 6 on the lowest level, 11 on the second level and 35 on the third and top level. its upper part reaches a length of 273 metres (originally 360 metres when there were twelve extra arches). it served as an aqueduct until the 6th century before becoming a tollgate in the middle ages and finally a road bridge from the 18th to 20th century.
