Speaker’s note on Water Turbine:  Water power would be saved from extinction by the development of the water turbine and its application to the generation and transmission of hydro-electric power. This talk shows how the waterwheel re-invented itself in the guise of the water turbine and this form continues to be a significant  contribution to the world’s supply of primary energy. Early forms of water turbine and later reaction and impulse turbines and the many variations on these two types of turbine are covered.
