Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) was a member of a well-respected family of Swiss scientists and mathematicians. His book, “Hydrodynamica,” published in 1793, coined the term “hydrodynamics.” Bernoulli’s fluid flow equations contributed to the success of the modern practice of testing scale models early in the design process.
Bernoulli’s work is also integral to aerodynamics because it explains the way that air moves over a curved surface. This understanding is key to the design of aerodynamically sound vehicles. It also influences the design of aircraft to this day.
