Sankey diagrams are named after Captain Matthew Henry Phineas Riall Sankey.

Here is some biographical information on Mr. Sankey:

Matthew H. Sankey was an engineer from Ireland. He was born on November 9, 1853 in Nenagh, co. Tipperary (other sources have him being born in Modeshill, co. Tipperary or Bawnmore, co. Cork) to a family of military. His father, William, was a Lieut.-Col. in the 62nd regiment. Sankey joined the military as well and became an engineer in the Corps of Royal Engineers (R.E.) with the rank of a captain.

Later he quit military service and joined Willans works, where he continued to work on the improvement of the efficiency of steam engines.

He became am member of the Institution of Civil Engineers. From 1920 to 1921 he acted as president of the British Institution of Mechanical Engineers. (Read a biography on the IMechE website)

Sankey Captain H Riall

Sankey diagrams are named after him, because he was the first to use them in a publication: In an annex to the minutes for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in 1898 he sketched the energy efficiency of a steam engine in comparison to an ideal steam engine without energy losses. Sankey diagrams show where material or energy flows with arrows with a width proportional to the flow quantity.

His publications include “The Maps of the Ordnance Survey” (1888), “The Thermal Efficiency of Steam Engines” (1895), “Governing of Steam Engines by Throttling and by Variable Expansion” (1895), “Interim Report of the Committee on tabulating the Results of Steam-Engine and Boiler Trials” (1902) and “The Energy Chart. Practical Applications to Reciprocal Steam-Engines” (1905)

On July 5, 1876 he married Elisabeth Pym, they had one child four children. Sankey died on October 3, 1925.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I have started a shut-up-and-write group in Edinburgh. we meet once a fortnight, just a few friends, in one of our living rooms; and it is working astonishingly well. I’m also, this week, in Seattle at the University of Washington, and will be running some sessions here too, and hoping it will catch on.
