serving also to open the escape passage to the exhaust gases. f is the induction slide, admitting the explosive mixture to the cylinder. g is the compressor by which the inflammable gas is introduced into the chamber where the mixture is formed. i is the reservoir of inflammable gas. j j are the fixed jets, and k k the movable. In Hugon's English patent 653 of 1863, the explosive force of the gas acts upon a column of water which transfers the force to the piston. See also Lenoir's patent, March 19, 1861; Dick's, 1867; Million, 1867. The ammoniacal engine has been termed a gasengine, but this latter name is more fairly applicable to those engines in which the force is obtained by the inflammation of the charge, rather than to those in which the motor is an elastic vapor under pressure. Frot's ammonia-engine resembles the steam-engine so closely that comparative experiments with the vapor of water and of ammonia have been made with it. See ammoniacal engine.
ramming down the blocks, was invented about 1830 by Colonel Macirone, London. A steam paving-machine in use in Paris consists of a small steam-engine on wheels, drawn by one horse, to the rear of which is attached the pavior or vertical rammer, which is forced upon the ground with great force by a blow from the piston. It slides on a bar some six feet long, and can thus be directed by the driver to any stone which requires forcing home. Lignier's machine (French) consists of a small Lenoir steam-engine, to the fly-wheel of which is attached a rammer of steel, smaller and heavier than the wooden one in general use. The operator simply guides the strokes of the machine. Paving-roller. Pav′ing-roll′er. A heated roller for compacting asphalt pavement. In the example, a cresset or firebasket is suspended within the roller in such a way as to preserve its proper position during the rotation of the roller. Pav′ing-tile. A flat brick for paving floors. Such are often<
