International Symposium on History of Machines and by Marco Ceccarelli

By Marco Ceccarelli

The HMM2004 foreign Symposium on heritage of Machines and Mechanisms is the second one occasion of a sequence that began in 2000 because the major job of the IFToMM everlasting fee for background of MMS, Mechanism and computer Science.
The objective of the HMM Symposium is to be a discussion board to switch perspectives, critiques, and reviews at the heritage of MMS from technical viewpoints on the way to music the prior but additionally to examine destiny advancements in MMS.
These court cases include approximately 30 papers by way of authors from everywhere in the international. The papers conceal the big variety of the historical past of mechanical engineering. and especially the background of MMS. The contributions deal with customarily technical elements of old advancements of machines and mechanisms. The heritage of the IFToMM, the overseas Federation for the merchandising of Mechanism and computing device technology, can also be defined during the ancient actions of its Commissions. unique assets are referenced within the papers in order that those court cases will be additionally thought of a type of instruction manual at the historical past of machines and mechanisms.

The IFToMM Constitution & By Laws stipulates: “The Permanent Commission for the Standardization of Terminology has to write a standard terminology (with definitions) for mechanism and machine science, including terms pertaining to the realization of motion in machines and its control, associated problems in dynamics and kinematics, and in machine components; to cooperate with other international and national bodies concerned with terminology and related matters. METHODOLOGY In view of the demand that a well-made definition should distinguish by identifying and identify by distinguishing, the commission reached an agreement on the following rules to be observed in the methodology of defining: In each context, it must be possible to replace the term to be defined (definiendum) by the definition (definiens).

T. Leinonen. [10] It contained 763 terms and their definitions and was divided into the following chapters and subchapters: • Structure of Machines and Mechanisms (Components, Sub-assemblies; Mechanisms) • Kinematics (General; Motion; Kinematic Geometry) 30 • Dynamics (General; Force and Moment; Momentum, Energy, Work and Power, Principles; Structural Behaviour and Characteristics; Structural Concepts; Dynamical Concepts; Dynamical Systems and Characteristics; Vibrations) • Machine Control and Measurements (Signals and Functions; Accuracy and Errors; Devices and Components) • Robotics (Systems; Components; Motion; Control; Miscellaneous) • Appendix (General Terms Used in TMM).

Although there has been some recent criticism of the present (and future) development of our terminology, which takes over terms from other sciences and technical fields, the criterion of utility must be respected. It is our belief that most professionals related to and working in the MMS discipline do need proper reference documentation covering, in terms and definitions, every notion and conceptual category in use. If necessary, a differentiation mark between “own” and “borrowed” terms can be included and introduced in the next edition.
