Nouvelles expériences sur la résistance des fluides.

Paris, Jombert, 1777. ____ Première édition. "These towing tank experiments were preceded only by those of Benjamin Franklin. In the present work, Bossut reports on the experiments on the resistance of bodies in connection with inland navigation, which were conducted in 1775 by d'Alembert, Condorcet and himself at the request of the government. Using a towing tank constructed under Bossut's supervision, it was determined that the resistance increases as the relative area of the canal diminishes. The text describes the preparations for the experiments and supplies numerous tables of the result." Biblio. mechanica 9. Coins et coupes frottés, quelques taches sur les plats, assez bon exemplaire. *-------*. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : (4), 232 pp., 5 planches h.-t.
