Abstract

Chun-Hung Chiang was a pioneer in the academic field of mechanism and machine design in Taiwan. His major research contribution was in the study of spherical mechanisms. While associated with numerical computing methods going back to the 1970s, he introduced body guidance, path generation, and function generation to the classical spherical mechanisms, and he developed concise research in regard to spherical mechanisms. Furthermore, he founded the committee/society of mechanism and machine theory in Taiwan and led the group to join IFToMM in 1983.
