 Phonograph cylinder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Early cylinder records would commonly wear out after they were played a few dozen times; the buyer could then either bring the worn cylinders back to the dealer to be traded in as partial credit for purchase of new recordings, or have their surface shaved smooth so new recordings could be made on them.
Cylinder phonographs also usually used a worm gear to move the stylus in synchronization with the grooves of the recording, whereas most disc machines relied on the grooves to pull the stylus along.
Cylinder phonograph technology continued to be used for dictaphone recordings for office use into the early 1950s when the cylinder dictaphone was supplanted by magnetic tape.

A right cylinder is the solid traced out by a rectangle which revolves about one of its sides, or the curved surface of this solid; the surface may also be defined as the locus of a line which passes through the circumference of a circle, and is always perpendicular to the plane of the circle.
The axis of a circular cylinder is the line joining the centresbf two circular sections; it is the line through the centre of the directrix parallel to the generators.
The section of an oblique cylinder by a plane perpendicular to the principal section, and inclined to the axis at the same angle as the base, is named the, subcontrary section, and is always a circle; any other section is an ellipse.

cylinder, in mathematics, surface generated by a line moving parallel to a given fixed line and continually intersecting a given fixed curve called the directrix; each line of the family of lines forming the cylinder is called a ruling, or generator.
The commonest type of cylinder is the right circular cylinder, in which the directrix is a circle and the lines forming the cylinder are all perpendicular to the plane of the circle.
The perpendicular distance between the planes is the altitude of the cylinder.

 FLOW AROUND A CYLINDER - 1a   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The grid of smoke sources is equally spaced in the vertical direction and it is positioned far upstream from the body (at a distance of about 100 times the radius of the cylinder), so that sources are not influenced by the body (uniform flow).
This delay is not due to friction (we are dealing with an inviscid fluid) but to the fact that near the stagnation points velocity tends to decelerate to zero speed.
In many elementary aerodynamics textbooks it is stated that, with non-zero circulation, the portion of fluid flowing above the cylinder is accelerated with respect to the one flowing below it ``because it must travel for a longer route to reach downstream in the same amount of time''.

 Edison:The History of the Edison Cylinder Phonograph
Edison increased the entertainment offerings on his cylinders, which by 1892 were made of a wax known among collectors today as "brown wax." Although called by this name, the cylinders could range in color from off-white to light tan to dark brown.
The finer sound of the cylinder was partly due to the fact that a cylinder had constant surface speed from beginning to end in contrast to the inner groove distortion that occurred on discs when the surface speed slowed down.
Cylinders, though, had truly peaked by this time, and even the superior sound of the Blue Amberols could not persuade the larger public to buy cylinders.

 How To Bench Bleed A Master Cylinder
If the master cylinder is not bled, it will take you at least twice as long to bleed the system, and then there's no guarantee that you'll have removed all the air from the system.

In fact, because the flow field associated with a rotating cylinder is two dimensional, it is much easier to understand the basic physics of this problem than the more complex three dimensional aspects of a curveball.
The equation states that the lift L per unit length along the cylinder is directly proportional to the velocity V of the flow, the density r of the flow, and the strength of the vortex G that is established by the rotation.
The cylinder is two feet in diameter and 20 feet long and the air is flowing past this cylinder at 100 miles per hour.

 Hydraulic Tutorials
Cylinders convert fluid power into linear force and motion.
The linear force generated by a hydraulic cylinder is a product of system pressure and effective area, minus inefficiencies (losses).
When sizing a hydraulic cylinder for a specific application the relationships between pressure, area, displacement volume, flow, speed, and the influence of inefficiencies must be considered.
