International Symposium on History of Machines and Mechanisms
Springer, Apr 30, 2004 - History - 405 pages
The HMM2004 International Symposium on History of Machines and Mechanisms is the second event of a series that started in 2000 as the main activity of the IFToMM Permanent Commission for History of MMS, Mechanism and Machine Science.
The aim of the HMM Symposium is to be a forum to exchange views, opinions, and experiences on the history of MMS from technical viewpoints in order to track the past but also to look at future developments in MMS.
These Proceedings contain about 30 papers by authors from all around the world. The papers cover the wide range of the history of mechanical engineering. and particularly the history of MMS. The contributions address mainly technical aspects of historical developments of machines and mechanisms. The history of the IFToMM, the International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science, is also outlined through the historical activities of its Commissions. Original sources are referenced in the papers so that these Proceedings can be also considered a kind of handbook on the history of machines and mechanisms.

I noticed that in the article on the mechane of the Theatre of Dionysos in Athens that no reference was made to my 1979 article in ARCHAEOLOGICAL NEWS, wherein I proposed a reconstruction of the fifth-century B.C.E.theatre machine. As it happens, my reconstruction, based on archaeological and literary evidence, is similar to that in the article here. My reconstruction is much simpler, however, as it is based on an existing machine, the geranos used for well-water retrieval, which could be adapted for use in the theatre without too much trouble. The Theatre of Dionysos presents a unique problem for theatre machines like the mechane and the ekkyklema, as there is limited backstage area and a precipitous drop-off into the temenos of Dionysos Eleutherios. My reconstruction takes advantage of this drop-off, using it to accommodate a human counterweight to the actor on the business end of the crane arm. I trust that in the future your scholars will review all the extant literature on the subject, including my article entitled ""That Magnificent Flying Machine: On the Nature of the Mechane of the Theatre of Dionysos at Athens," Archaeological News 8 (1979):1-6.
