On the Equilibrium of Planes (Greek: Περὶ ἐπιπέδων ἱσορροπιῶν) is a treatise by Archimedes in two volumes. The first book establishes the law of the lever, and locates the centre of gravity of the triangle and the trapezoid. According to Pappus of Alexandria, Archimedes' work on levers caused him to remark: "Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth.".

This book, A practical treatise on segmental and elliptical oblique or skew arches, by George Joseph Bell, is a replication of a book originally published before It has been restored by human beings, page by page, so that you may enjoy it in a form as close to the original as possible.

This book was created using print-on-demand technology. The author invites the reader to take part in a journey through time to explore the equilibrium of structures.

That journey starts with the emergence of the statics and strength of materials of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo, and reaches its first climax with Coulombs structural theories for beams, earth pressure and arches in the late 18th century.

To which is added an Essay on the Nature and Properties of Timber, etc, with Descriptions of the Kinds of Wood. Conditions of static equilibrium: A structure is in a state of static equilibrium if the resultant of all the forces and moments acting on it is equal to zero.

Mathematically, this is expressed as follows: ∑ F = 0 ∑ M = 0. For a body in a plane, there are the following three equations of equilibrium: ∑ F x. The author invites the reader to take part in a journey through time to explore the equilibrium of structures.

That journey starts with the emergence of the statics and strength of materials of Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo, and reaches its first climax with Coulomb's structural theories for beams, earth pressure and arches in the late 18th. By contrast, Coulomb's solutions for arches make only marginal reference to the strength of the material (masonry), and his exploration of the stability of the arch is based solely on considerations of equilibrium, coupled (as is made explicit in the title of his memoir) by.

Archimedes wrote nine treatises that survive. In On the Sphere and Cylinder, he showed that the surface area of a sphere with radius r is 4πr 2 and that the volume of a sphere inscribed within a cylinder is two-thirds that of the cylinder.

(Archimedes was so proud of the latter result that a diagram of it was engraved on his tomb.) In Measurement of the Circle, he showed that pi lies between. The 17th-century scientist Robert Hooke wrote: "Ut pendet continuum flexile, sic stabit contiguum rigidum inversum", or, "As hangs a flexible cable so, inverted, stand the touching pieces of an arch.".

A note written by Thomas Jefferson in reads, "I have lately received from Italy a treatise on the equilibrium of arches, by the Abbé Mascheroni.

James Gibbs - Rules for drawing several parts of architecture. () If you wish to learn how to draw the classical orders of architecture then 'Rules for drawing' is the obvious starting point.

Gibbs' book is not the most academic of the Treatise but when I was first learning to draw the orders I found that this was an advantage as it prevented 'information overload'. In he published a 'Treatise on the Equilibrium of Arches, in which the Theory is demonstrated upon familiar Mathematical Principles,' of which a second edition was.

This book guided British mathematics, especially in the highly competitive Mathematical Tripos at Cambridge for almost one-half century.
