Allievi Lorenzo (1856–1941)

Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS,volume 26)

Abstract

Lorenzo Allievi is best known for the Water hammer solution, which he proposed in 1903. But he also contributed to Mechanism Design with the milestone work ‘Cinematica delle Biella Piana’ (Kinematics of Planar Couplers), published in 1895 as an original work from application of the Burmester Theory. His lifetime’s professional activity cemented him as a Captain of Industry, as he experienced success in many Italian enterprises and organizations.

Keywords

  • Planar Motion
  • Mechanism Design
  • Stationary Curvature
  • Water Hammer
  • Coupler Curve

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

This Chapter is an expanded version of the journal paper: Ceccarelli M., Koetsier T., “Burmester and Allievi: A Theory and Its Application for Mechanism Design at the End of 19th Century,” Journal of Mechanical Design (Vol.130, July 2008, pp. 072301-1:16), http://link.aip.org/link/?JMD/130/072301 (DOI: 10.1115/1.2918911).
