This booklet describes innovations and designs of old engineers which are the precursors of the current. The a long time often diversity from three hundred B.C. to 1600 A.D. with a few exceptions from prior to and after this era.

As for the very old ones, the ebook describes innovations (documented by means of archaeological reveals frequently from Pompei, Ercolano and Stabia) that mostly are little or no recognized and occasionally now not recognized in any respect. a few innovations are within the army box. the reason is, (unfortunately) many innovations and technological recommendations were conceived ranging from army applications.

The publication is split into 5 parts.

The first 4 components pertain to convinced fields and current innovations in most cases conceived as much as the past due Roman Empire. innovations which are consultant of the engineering genius of the ancients and which may be regarded as milestones, every one of their respective field.

The 5th half refers to fields of engineering (such as textiles and automation) during which very important strategies have been conceived additionally in additional contemporary centuries.

For all of the innovations awarded, even the traditional ones of many centuries prior, the authors supply 3 components of analysis and reference:

Written files (the classics)

Iconic references (coins, bas-reliefs, etc.)

Archaeological findings.

The goal teams of the e-book are scholars and students with curiosity on historical past of Mechanical Engineering in Antiquity and Archaelogy.

Example text

This process is simulated using the pivot mold which allows pressing the slab during solidification. 1% carbon steel thin slabs will be discussed. It is found that the internal quality of the slab is markedly improved by cast-rolling during solidification and it depends on the amount of pressure and the time of application. P. process from Mannesmann Demag and Arvedi is based on the industrial trials at Mannesmann steelplant in Duisburg but mainly now at the Arvedi steelplant in Cremona, Italy.
