E227 -- Continuation des recherches sur la theorie du mouvement des fluides

(Continuation into the research on the theory of the motion of fluids)

(based on Clifford A. Truesdell's introduction to Opera Omnia Series II, Volume 12)
This is a continuation of E226 in which Euler improves one of his results. He also gives an exhaustive theory of the flow in tubes, generalizing some of his results from E225. He also treats compressible fluids for the first time, and it is in this work that the complex potential for the source, sink, or vortex first appears.

According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with this title was presented to the Berlin Academy on October 2, 1755.
