Ferdinand Freudenstein (1926–2006)

  • Bernard Roth
Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS, volume 1)

Abstract

Ferdinand Freudenstein is considered the father of modern kinematics in America. He made his mark early with his seminal PhD dissertation in which he developed what is known as Freudenstein’s Equation. During a long career at Columbia University, he and his students produced outstanding research results in every area of modern kinematics. At the time of his death there were over 500 academic descendents belonging to the Freudenstein family tree. His progeny are teachers in many different countries, and his research results have shaped the teaching and practice of mechanism and machine theory throughout the world.
