摘要

There were numerous mechanical inventions in ancient China, but few people know about these achievements due to the lack of surviving archives. This chapter first introduces the historical development of ancient Chinese machines followed by ancient labor-saving devices. Finally, major mechanical elements and mechanisms of ancient Chinese machines, such as linkage mechanisms, cam mechanisms, gear mechanisms, and flexible connecting mechanisms (ropes and chains), are presented.
