The Difference Between Cement And Concrete

Dec 05, 2011The Romans were able to produce massive structures like the Pantheon and the Roman aqueducts using this formula. Currently, cement comes in two forms: Hydraulic and Non-Hydraulic. Hydraulic cement refers to any cement that uses water to begin a chemical reaction that hardens the mixture and, when fully formed, creates a water resistant product.

Hydraulis: The Ancient Roman Pipe Organ — McLerran Journal

May 02, 2018The hydraulis was popular throughout the Hellenistic and Roman world for well over two centuries before being replaced by the pneumatic organ in the 5th century (McKinnon). The new instrument exchanged Ctesibius's hydraulic pumps with bellows (like artificial lungs) which made the device more portable, less expensive, and more durable (McKinnon).

Gold Mining Practices under the Roman Empire

May 24, 2011The Romans used several different methods for mining gold and extraction, the first being hydraulic mining. This process was also used by the Spaniards. Gold would be stored in large tanks or vessels and when the water was released into a water source or river, the sediments would wash away, leaving veins in the earth and particles of gold.
