He was the author of numerous inventions, including the cagniardelle, a blowing machine, which consists essentially of an Archimedean screw set obliquely in a tank of water in such a way that its lower end is completely and its upper end partially immersed, and operated by being rotated in the opposite direction to that required for raising water.

00(2) A right cylinder having for its base an Archimedean spiral is intersected by a right circular cone which has the generating line of the cylinder passing through the initial point of the spiral for its axis.

00The blanks are charged into a hopper at one end of the furnace and conveyed towards the other end by a revolving Archimedean screw.

00The mensuration of the cube, and its relations to other geometrical solids are treated in the article Polyhedron; in the same article are treated the Archimedean solids, the truncated and snubcube; reference should be made to the article Crystallography for its significance as a crystal form.

00Another group of polyhedra are termed the " Archimedean solids," named after Archimedes, who, according to Pappus, invented them.

00The following table gives these constants for the regular polyhedra; n denotes the number of sides to a face, n 1 the number of faces to a vertex: - Archimedean Solids.

00Although this term is frequently given to the Archimedean solids, yet it is a convenient denotation for solids which have all their angles, faces, and edges equal, the faces not being regular polygons.

00We may also note that of the Archimedean solids: the truncated tetrahedron, truncated cube, and truncated dodecahedron, are the reciprocals of the crystal forms triakistetrahedron, triakisoctahedron and triakisicosahedron.

00This is one of the Platonic solids, and is treated in the article Polyhedron, as is also the derived Archimedean solid named the "truncated tetrahedron"; in addition, the regular tetrahedron has important crystallographic relations, being the hemihedral form of the regular octahedron and consequently a form of the cubic system.

00The "regular icosahedron" is one of the Platonic solids; the "great icosahedron" is a Kepler-Poinsot solid; and the "truncated icosahedron" is an Archimedean solid (see Polyhedron).

00The blanks are charged into a hopper at one end of the furnace and conveyed towards the other end by a revolving Archimedean screw.

00The "small stellated dodecahedron," the "great dodecahedron" and the "great stellated dodecahedron" are Kepler-Poinsot solids; and the "truncated" and "snub dodecahedra" are Archimedean solids (see Polyhedron).

00Another group of polyhedra are termed the " Archimedean solids," named after Archimedes, who, according to Pappus, invented them.

00The following table gives these constants for the regular polyhedra; n denotes the number of sides to a face, n 1 the number of faces to a vertex: - Archimedean Solids.

00- Two Archimedean solids of 26 faces are derived from the coaxial cube, octahedron and semiregular (rhombic) dodecahedron (see below).

00Although this term is frequently given to the Archimedean solids, yet it is a convenient denotation for solids which have all their angles, faces, and edges equal, the faces not being regular polygons.

00We may also note that of the Archimedean solids: the truncated tetrahedron, truncated cube, and truncated dodecahedron, are the reciprocals of the crystal forms triakistetrahedron, triakisoctahedron and triakisicosahedron.
