COULOMB (Augustin)
Théorie des machines simples, en ayant égard au frottement de leurs parties et à la roideur de cordages... Nouvelle édition, a laquelle on a ajouté les Mémoires du même auteur [...]‎
Paris: Bachelier, 1821. The first collected edition, in book form, of all of Coulomb's major contributions to mechanicsNorman 528 ; Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 82-83.Just before 1810, Bachelier bought the entire unsold stock of original printings of the Académie des Sciences. Around the same time, circa 1809, he offered for sale various sammelbands of Coulomb's original offprints (for an example see Norman 587). In 1821, when he had sold all of those offprints,he published, for the first time in book form, the present collection on mechanics."Coulomb's collected memoirs on mechanics. The first of these deals with simple machines and won the Academy prize of 1779. The second is a study of friction at pivots, and the third deals with torsion and the elasticity of metal wire. In the fourth memoir Coulomb discusses man's ability to perform work, quoting Daniel Bernoulli and d'Alembert. The fifth memoir is devoted to windmills and the force of their wings, while the last is his famous memoir, 'Sur une application des regles de maximis et minimis a quelques problemes de statique relatif a l'architecture' (1773). The mathematical sections of the work were reviewed for publication by Jose Maria Lanz, co-author of the Essai sur la composition de machines." (Robert/Trent)."Coulomb's most celebrated study, one that brought him immediate acclaim, was 'Théorie des machines simples,' his prize-winning friction study of 1781. He investigated both static and dynamic friction of sliding surfaces and friction in bending of cords and in rolling. From examination of many physic … [Click Below for Full Description]
