Abstract

First edition of d'Alembert's masterpiece on dynamics. "The 'Treatise on Dynamics' was d'Alembert's first major book and it is a landmark in the history of mechanics. It reduces the laws of the motion of bodies to a law of equilibrium. Its statement that 'the internal forces of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces that produce the acceleration' is still known as 'd'Alembert's principle'. This principle is applied to many phenomena and, in particular, to the theory of the motion of fluids. It has become useful in the practical solution of many technical and mechanical problems, and is as important for the motion of bodies as is the principle of virtual velocities for their equilibrium the latter formulated by Johann Bernouilli in 1717 (see 179). It was left to Lagrange to com...[ Read more ]

It was left to Lagrange to combine both these principles and to construct mechanical equations applicable to the motions of any system of bodies." --Printing And The Mind Of Man 195.
