Warville accuses Chastellux of exposing to ridicule, and grossly misrepresented the principles and manners of the Quakers. He writes that Chastellux s reflections on the slavery of the negroes, and his thoughts on the condition of mankind with respect to the ranks in society, are often unjust.
Chastellux was "one of the forty members of the French Academy, and Major General in the French Army, serving under the Count de Rochambeau" title-page of English edition with whom he travelled throughout New England and Pennsylvania, he recounts meetings with Generals Washington and Cornwallis and Thomas Jefferson at Monticello: "Let me describe to you a man, not yet forty, tall, and with a mild and pleasing countenance, but whose mind and understanding are ample substitutes for every exterior grace. An American, who without ever having quitted his own country, is at once musician, skilled in drawing; a geometrician, an astronomer, a natural philosopher, legislator, and statesman.

A little rubbing, an excellent copy. On hydraulics, the construction of hydraulic machines, and shipbuilding, illustrated with a fine set of technical illustrations, this work includes the general principles of the resistance of fluids, and of the mechanics of paddle-wheels and their application in mills and pumps. One chapter is devoted to the resistance of fluids against the hulls of ships, another to a machine of the author's own invention for raising water, and the last chapter is on a new form of windmill.

First edition of this remarkable volume, containing several highly important articles. In Coulomb's memoir of , one of the most important papers in the history of engineering, there is almost an embarrassment of riches, for Coulomb proceeded to discuss the theory of compressive rupture of masonry piers, the design of vaulted arches, and the theory of earth pressure. In the latter he developed a generalized sliding wedge theory of soil mechanics that remains in use today in basic engineering practice DSB. The purpose of this memoir, he said, was to determine, as far as a combination of mathematics and physics will permit, the influence of friction and of cohesion in some problems of statics.
Coulomb s statics problems might seem disconnected to the modern reader, but they were at the heart of eighteenth-century engineering mechanics.
In the beginning of the essay, Coulomb introduced three propositions relating to equilibrium and resolution of forces. Following this, he considered friction and cohesion, and gave virtually a theory of the flexure of beams and rupture and shear of brittle materials. Following this, he considered cohesion. Friction was seen as resulting from tangential contact between bodies, but cohesion was supposedly due to the effect of close-acting central forces.
Cohesion in materials was considered by Coulomb as a mixture of what would today be called shear and tensile strengths. Having presented these basic propositions and experiments, Coulomb proceeded to a discussion of the flexing of a beam and correctly determined, for the first time, the neutral surface of a beam. Hannes Strobl is a bass player and composer, born in , who lives in Berlin. The starting point for his music is the sound-based potential of the electric bass. Focus of his work on the instrument as well as his compositional work in recent years, has been in particular in the forms of musical expression against the background of the urban world of sounds.
Originally from Austria, both of them have lived in Berlin for a long time, the last three years in the district of Prenzlauer Berg.
