Ref: Causeway Funicular
The Double Incline Plain science calculator is producing some interesting facts. For pulling stones up from the Harbor, the Funicular would need to carry nearly 3.8 times the weight of the other side. On a 5 degree causeway angle, the COF (coefficient of friction) would be 0.05 - 0.06. This is the range of becoming in balance, ie. reaching a State of Equilibrium. So basically, whatever the dimensions are of a Pyramid stone, you will need nearly 4 times it's volume in water weight, to pull it up the Causeway.
A 4 to 1 ratio. Increase the amount of stones needed, you need to build a vessel, 4 times as big in volume.
The science calculator also provides the Tension involved, and the rate of speed it would travel. The rate of speed, increases as the process takes place. It is not a consistent speed. They would need to bail water, to slow it down, and thereby maintain control. Doing so may have contributed to the erosion along side the Sphinx? There is also an unexplained ditch, running down alongside the Causeway, and into the Sphinx encampment. It starts approximately midway down from the Upper Temple. Additionally, the rope tension increases the faster the vessels travel. The Funicular system requires very few men to operate it. Gravity and water do the work.
Working on it... the light could be better.
