Hydrodynamics and hydraulics by Daniel Bernoulli and Johann Bernoulli. Translated by Thomas Carmody and Helmut Kobus.

New York: Dover Publications, 1968.

Daniel Bernoulli’s Hydrodynamica, published in 1738, marks the first appearance of many topics central to modern science - from the kinetic theory of gases to the principles of jet propulsion. John Bernoulli’s Hydraulica, published in 1743, supplements his son’s book and deals primary with hydraulics. The principles developed in these works represent the beginnings of hemodynamics.
