On figuring it out tall



"All the cutting force of the wind passes into the interior of the leading edge uprights. Lines drawn tangential to each upright with the point of each tangent at the same height, will always intersect at a second point, which is exactly the point through which passes the flow resultant from the action of the wind on that part of the tower support situated above the two points in question.Before coming together at the high pinnacle, the uprights appear to burst out of the ground, and in a way to be shaped by the action of the wind".

At awe just underneath it, Sam Renseiw took a short-sighted look, somehow blurred. Gustave E. just figured it out, yet the mathematical formula responsible for the elegant shape was only recently solved. Enjoy the short green calculus by clicking here or mouse in to a violin tune above. (patafilm # 303, 00'43'', 3.3 MB, Quicktime/mov - Flash version for PC at blip.tv)
