Prof. Müller’s First Lecture

  • Leopold Müller
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 8)


The mechanical sciences are old and venerable. But age does not protect from stupidity. The Cremona-plan and the theorem of the parallelogram of forces in their seniority have meddled with a science which is about 150 years younger — with geology. The consequences of this liaison were inevitable — their name is geomechanics. I am particularly honoured in introducing as a sort of governess this young and still somewhat immature creature to this group of mature and famous contemporaries.
