中文介紹

本書為作者所著如下英文專書的簡體字版:K.H. Hsiao, H.S. Yan, 2014.01, Mechanisms in Ancient Chinese Books with Illustrations, Springer, Netherlands, ISBN 978-3-319-02008-2.

本書提供一套獨特的方法,用於研究古中國書籍之插圖機構與機器繪製不明確的問題。此方法應用作者所創之「機構概念設計法」,將研究零散史料所得到的發散構想,收斂轉化至現代機構設計的領域,產生所有符合史料記載及當代工藝水準的可行設計,並以古中國弩、紡織機構、及手工業機構為例說明所提方法。此方法提供一個合理工具,進行不確定構造的古機構復原設計及判定插圖機構的原始構造。第01-03章介紹5本具插圖機構之書籍的內容與背景,說明機器與機構的定義。第04章論述古中國機械的歷史發展及常見的機構類型。第05章提出古籍插圖機構分類與系統化復原方法,以獲得古機構所有可行的設計。第06-11章則根據所提方法,說明5本代表性書籍中各個裝置的機構構造及復原設計的結果。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。

 

Mechanisms in Ancient Chinese Books with Illustrations

Abstract

     This is a simplified Chinese version of the following English book: H.S. Yan, 2007, Mechanisms in Ancient Chinese Books with Illustrations, Springer, Netherlands, ISBN 978-3-319-02008-2.

     This book presents a unique approach to study mechanisms and machines with illustrations that were depicted confusedly in ancient Chinese books. The historical, cultural and technical backgrounds of the mechanisms are explained, and various mechanisms described and illustrated in ancient books are introduced. By combining the creative mechanism design methodology proposed by the author with the mechanical evolution and variation theory, all feasible designs of ancient mechanisms with uncertain members and joints that meet the technical standards of the subjects’ time periods are synthesized systematically. Ancient Chinese crossbows (original crossbow and repeating crossbows), textile mechanisms (silk-reeling mechanism, spinning mechanisms, and looms), and many other handiwork mechanisms are used as illustrated chapters. Such an approach provides a logical tool for the reconstruction designs of ancient mechanisms with uncertain structures. It also provides an innovative direction for researchers to further identify the original structures of mechanisms and machines with illustrations in ancient literature. 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.
