中文介紹

本書為作者所著如下英文專書的簡體字版:H.S. Yan, 2007, Reconstruction Designs of Lost Ancient Chinese Machinery, ISBN 978-4020-6459-3, Springer, Netherlands.

本書致力於機械史學領域提出一套創新的方法,系統化復原設計古中國失傳機械,其目的是產生所有可能之失傳機械的設計概念。此方法以作者所創之「機構概念設計法」為基礎工具,將研究零散史料所得到的特定知識及所引發的發散構想,收斂轉化為現代機構設計的範疇,並應用機械演化與變異理論來產生所有符合史料記載與當代工藝技術水準的復原設計。此方法提供古機械領域的學者一個合理工具,進一步地從史料中判定原始設計。第01-03章介紹古中國機械與現代機構的背景。第04章提出系統化的復原方法,以獲得失傳機械所有可能的機構構造。第05-08章則提供失傳設計的範例,如張衡的地動儀、蘇頌的擒縱調速器、指南車、及魯班的木車馬,並按步驟解釋第04章所提之復原設計法。本書適用於機械系大學部高年級生或研究生,在古機械史或機構(創意)設計相關課程的教科書和/或補充教材。

 

Reconstruction Designs of Lost Ancient Chinese Machinery

Hong-Sen Yan

Abstract

     This is a simplified Chinese version of the following English book: H.S. Yan, 2007, Reconstruction Designs of Lost Ancient Chinese Machinery, ISBN 978-4020-6459-3, Springer, Netherlands.

     This work presents an innovative approach for the reconstruction designs of lost ancient Chinese machinery. By combining the creative mechanism design methodology proposed by the author with the mechanical evolution and variation theory, all feasible and appropriate designs that are consistent with the science theories and techniques of the subject time period can be systematically recreated. South pointing chariots, walking machines (the Wooden Horse Carriage and the Wooden Cow and Gliding Horse), the seismograph, and the astronomical mechanical clock, are used as illustrated chapters. The cultural, scientific, and technological backgrounds of these achievements are explained. Before new literature and/or hardware evidences are found, this work provides a novel direction and a unique tool for studying the lost machinery in ancient China and around the world. The book can be used as a textbook and/or supplemental reading material for courses related to history of ancient (Chinese) machinery and creative mechanism design for senior and graduate students in mechanical engineering.
