E208 -- Maximes pour arranger le plus avantageusement les machines destinées è élever de l'eau par le moyen des pompes

(Advice for the most advantages arrangement of the machines used to raised water via pumps)


In this work, Euler lists simple "maxims" for mechanics to use when designing pumps and acqueducts. These maxims take into account the various types of power available.

According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with this title was presented to the Berlin Academy on February 5, 1750.
