Abstract

When Ludwig Prandtl took up the Chair of Applied Mechanics at Göttingen University in 1904, the small university town became the cradle of modern fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. Not only did Prandtl found two research institutions of worldwide renown, the Aerodynamische Versuchsanstalt (AVA) and the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Institut für Strömungsforschung, but with the so-called ‘Göttingen School’ he also established an exceptionally fertile line of scientific thinking, unique for its special balance of intuition for physics and mathematical precision. The scientific methods developed by Prandtl and his pupils are manifested in numerous dissertations, monographs and textbooks that now rate as classics and hence belong to the fundamental works on fluid mechanics. Yet many of these publications have long been out of print and inaccessible for study. The series Göttinger Klassiker der Strömungsmechanik is thus making available selected publications that emerged from Ludwig Prandtl’s ‘Göttingen School’ or stand in a particular historical relationship to it. This highly personal biography of Ludwig Prandtl compiled by his daughter, Johanna Vogel-Prandtl, is complemented by numerous photographs depicting Prandtl’s working and private life. It completes the picture of the founding father of modern fluid mechanics whose scientific importance continues to resonate to this day.

Abstract

Fünf unternehmungslustige junge Frauen wuchsen am Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts gemeinsam in Göttingen auf: Philippine Gatterer, Caroline Michaelis, Therese Heyne, Meta Wedekind und Dorothea Schlözer. Alle fünf waren Professorentöchter und genossen eine für ihre Zeit außergewöhnliche Bildung, sodass sie der Nachwelt unter dem Namen „Göttinger Universitätsmamsellen“ bekannt wurden. Als Erwachsene wandten sie sich der Literatur zu und veröffentlichten eigenwillige Gedichte, Abenteuerromane, aber auch Reiseberichte, Übersetzungen und Briefe. Dieser Band versammelt eine Auswahl ihrer interessantesten Werke, ergänzt um Kurzbiographien, historische Erläuterungen und einen illustrierten Stadtrundgang.
