By Michela Cigola

This ebook comprises chapters that attention particularly on unmarried figures that labored on Descriptive Geometry and likewise in Mechanisms Sciences and include biographical notes, a survey in their paintings and their achievements, including a latest interpretation in their legacy.

Since Vitruvius in precedent days, and with Brunelleschi within the Renaissance, the 2 disciplines started to percentage a standard path which, over the centuries, took form via much less recognized figures until eventually the more moderen instances within which Gaspard Monge worked.

Over the years, a niche has been created among Descriptive Geometry and Mechanism technological know-how, which now seem to belong to diverse worlds. actually, despite the fact that, there's a very shut dating among the 2 disciplines, with a hyperlink in line with super reliable foundations. with no the theoretical foundations of Geometry it should no longer be attainable to attract and layout mechanical components reminiscent of gears, whereas in Kinematics it'd be much less effortless to layout and expect the reciprocal routine of components in a fancy mechanical assembly.
