Zhang Heng's seismoscope

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter systematically reconstructs all feasible design concepts of Zhang Heng's seismoscope that meet the scientific and technological standards of its time period. The development of ancient seismometers and western seismoscopes is introduced first. Then, historical records of Zhang Heng's seismoscope are studied and design specifications for the reconstruction design are concluded. Finally, three examples based on different design requirements and constraints are illustrated [1, 2].
