IFToMM Terminology

Terminology for the Mechanism and Machine Science.
Proceedings of the Scientific Seminar 

This volume contains the papers presented at the Scientific Seminar in the framework of the 25th Working Meeting of IFToMM Permanent Commission for Standardization of Terminology on MMS.

The authors present the scientists from Belarus, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Serbia.

The information on IFToMM activity including the paper prepared by scientists from CIS and post-Soviet countries in the field of MMS terminology is considered. A review on development of the theory and practice of gearing is introduced. MMS section problems, such as Gearing, Mechatronics, Biomechanics, Compliant Mechanisms and Machine Quality, are discussed.

Second edition has been supplemented with fresh information about MMS news and IFToMM activities over the period of 2014-2016.

It is in press in accordance with the decision of MPRI NASB Scientific Counsil (Protocol No 3 of 2016.03.31).
