The Genesis of Fluid Mechanics, 1640--1780 (2007)


Calero, Julián Simón (Author)


Publication Date: 2007
Physical Details: xiii + 517 pp.; ill.
Language: English

"Fluid Mechanics, as a scientific discipline in a modern sense, was established between the last third of the 17th and the first half of the 18th century. This book analyses its genesis, following its evolution along two basic lines of research, which have been named the "problem of resistance" and the "problem of discharge". This approach highlights the existence of a remarkable experimental aspect in the aforementioned research lines, together with their link with problems of a practical nature, such as ballistics, hydraulics, fluid-using machines or naval theory
