"D" is used as a differential operator, so perhaps it is not a good idea
to use it as a variable.
Also, when you use a string expression for an equation, I believe that
the symbolic variable is not used. So I ran the following slightly
different commands:
syms D1 % D1 not D
eqn=((D1^3)((16)/(pi*190*((1(D1/58))^4)))*(sqrt((399.64^2)+(379.33^2))));
% I replaced the = with a 
A=solve(eqn, D1) % worked just fine
A =
