International Symposium on History of Machines and by Marco Ceccarelli

By Marco Ceccarelli

The overseas Symposium on heritage of Machines and Mechanisms is a brand new initiative to advertise explicitly researches and guides within the box of the historical past of TMM (Theory of Machines and Mechanisms). It used to be held on the college of Cassino, Italy, from eleven to thirteen may well 2000. The Symposium used to be committed generally to the technical points of ancient advancements and for that reason it's been addressed usually to the IFToMM group. in truth, such a lot the authors of the contributed papers are specialists in TMM and comparable subject matters. This has been, certainly, a problem: convincing technical specialists to head extra in-depth into the historical past in their issues of craftsmanship. we've acquired a really confident reaction, as may be obvious by way of the truth that those court cases include contributions through authors from all over the global. We obtained approximately 50 papers, and after overview approximately forty papers have been approved for either presentation and publishing within the complaints. this implies additionally that the background of TMM is of curiosity all over the place and, certainly, an in-depth wisdom of the earlier will be of serious assist in engaged on the current and in shaping the longer term with new principles. i feel reader will make the most of the papers in those lawsuits with additional pride and motivation for her or his paintings (historical or not). those papers conceal the broad box of the historical past of Mechanical Engineering and especially the historical past of TMM.

In retrospect, I feel it was the visits to Bulgaria and the USSR, rather than the Atlanta meeting that were instrumental in giving me a strong interest in being part of IFfoMM; these visits were the beginnings of lasting personal relationships with several of IFfoMM's Eastern European founders. VISITS TO THE FOUNDERS My sabbatical in Delft was the reason for my first trip to Europe. Since, at that time, traveling to Europe seemed like a big undertaking, I doubt I would have attended the 2nd IFfoMM World Congress, except for the fact that I was going to be in Europe anyway.

Luigi Sobrero was a very important person for the CISM-IFToMM connection. He had held the Chair for Rational Mechanics and was the Director of the Institute of Mechanics at the University of Trieste. He had created CISM out of his own personal vision and energy. It is basically a center for post graduate courses and symposia in fields related to the mechanical sciences. It is supported by local funds and by membership contributions of member nations outside of Italy. His own interests toward the end of his life included the area of kinematics, and shortly before his death he published a textbook on the subject.

He was very close to his wife, and after she died his condition deteriorated. I was in the Soviet Union when Artobolevskii died. ) Some time around the middle ofthe conference I learned that Artobolevskii had died in Moscow. The conference effectively ended prematurely. Some, of the more well connected people were able to book flights back to Moscow for the funeral. All across the Soviet Union the television played funeral music and showed pictures of Artobolevskii and scenes from his life. It was very moving.
