In Germany, the Weber brothers hypothesized a great deal about human gait, but it was Christian Wilhelm Braune and his student Otto Fischer who significantly advanced the science using recent advances in engineering mechanics. During the same period, the engineering mechanics of materials began to flourish in France and Germany under the demands of the industrial revolution. Engineers had learned about principal stresses from Augustine Cauchy, and German engineers were actually calculating the stresses in railroad bridges when they designed them – a novel idea for cut and try American and English engineers!
