Abstract

Ancient Chinese mechanical devices with gear and cam members can be divided by functions into three types: agricultural devices with gears, water lifting devices with gears, and cam mechanisms. This chapter presents the uses and components of the devices, analyzes the numbers and the types of members and joints, and provides their structural sketches.
