Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Louis Brennan (28 January 1852 - 17 January 1932) was an Irish-Australian mechanical engineer and inventor. Brennan was born in Castlebar, Ireland, and moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1861 with parents. He started his career as a watchmaker and a few years later was articled to Alexander Kennedy Smith, a renowned civil and mechanical engineer of the period. Brennan invented the idea of a steerable torpedo in 1874, from observing that if a thread is pulled on a reel at an angle with suitable leverage, the reel will move away from the thread side.show more
