Fluid Mechanics, as a scientific discipline in a modern sense, was established between the last third of the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century. This book analyses its genesis from two lines: resistance and 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.In the remarkably extensive last article of 1746, he centres his attention on the case with a trapezoidal base with a ... Therefore, the best hull shape will be that which combines little resistance with a greater sail bearing capacity, and this is whatanbsp;...
