About these proceedings


This book gathers the proceedings of the 15th IFToMM World Congress, which was held in Krakow, Poland, from June 30 to July 4, 2019. Having been organized every four years since 1965, the Congress represents the world’s largest scientific event on mechanism and machine science (MMS). The contributions cover an extremely diverse range of topics, including biomechanical engineering, computational kinematics, design methodologies, dynamics of machinery, multibody dynamics, gearing and transmissions, history of MMS, linkage and mechanical controls, robotics and mechatronics, micro-mechanisms, reliability of machines and mechanisms, rotor dynamics, standardization of terminology, sustainable energy systems, transportation machinery, tribology and vibration. Selected by means of a rigorous international peer-review process, they highlight numerous exciting advances and ideas that will spur novel research directions and foster new multidisciplinary collaborations.

About the editors

Tadeusz Uhl is full professor at AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland, where he also serves as head of Mechanics and Robotics Department. His research interests focus on mechatronics, structural dynamics, monitoring and diagnostics of the structure. He has led many national and international research projects and authored more than 700 scientific publications. In 1998 he founded the engineering company Energocontrol, later transformed into a group of engineering companies under the name EC Grupa, which consists of 14 companies, mainly spin-offs at AGH. Currently, EC Grupa employs several hundred engineers in Poland and abroad, and carries out projects for clients all over the world in the field of high technologies in the energy, rail, air and machine industries.
