In these monographs Euler presents the final version of his general theory, formulated in terms of the momentum balance and continuity equation.
He illustrates the usefulness of this general foundation by applications to duct flows, streamline flows, potential and non-potential flows etc.
His approach is of great clarity and concise presentation and has remained modern until today.
Simón-Calero presents Euler’s work in great physical and analytical detail and considers Euler’s achievements as the essential final cornerstone in the building of fluid mechanics in the 18th c. In his final Chapter 10 Simón-Calero reviews the applications of fluid mechanics to pumps and turbines which were feasible in the 18th c.
with their contemporary fluid mechanics as background (Pitot, Borda, Daniel Bernoulli, Euler and Segner).
Some of these practical achievements precede the maturity of pertinent theories.
Simón Calero’s book closes with a useful appendix on units of measurement in various countries, a comprehensive bibliography and a helpful index. This book in summary pr...
