Mechanism Machine Robotics and Mechatronics Sciences Rany Rizk Mariette Awad

Preface

This book presents the proceedings of the first international congress, for the
advancement of mechanism machine robotics and mechatronics sciences, held in
Beirut during October 2017. This conference was organized by the Faculty of
Engineering at the Lebanese University and the Lebanese Federation to Mechanism
and Machine Sciences, the official delegation of the IFToMM in Lebanon. The
conference was under the responsibility of Dr. Rany Rizk the conference chair. It
was a part of the engineering job fair organized by the alumni of the faculty of
engineering. During this job fair, a mechatronics competition for the students was
organized by the mechatronics club of the faculty of engineering of the Lebanese
University. The main goal of the conference was to assemble the largest number of
students, researchers, businessmen and industrialists.
The book presents 20 recent research works in six different fields. It covers
multiple corners of the machine and robotics sciences. It contains works about
mechanical design, control, structural synthesis, vibration study and manufacturing.
It is a useful material for mechanical as well as for electrical engineers. Works
included in the book present high scientist methodology which makes it interesting
for researchers. The scientific committee members have reviewed all the papers,
each paper was reviewed by at least two specialized reviewers. The percentage of
acceptance was about 75% based on the standard IFToMM evaluation criteria.
Temperature Effects of the Machinery and Innovation in the Engineering
First two chapters present the effect of the temperature on the manufacturing and the
machine elements, mainly the cyclic loading due to the temperature fluctuation.
Third chapter presents a new method about wireless sensor network. Fourth and
fifth chapters are about two innovative devices developed for industrial
applications.
Biomedical Engineering
This part contains three chapters in the domain of biomedical engineering, a
modelling of biologically inspired structure and two exoskeletons, one for upper
and one for lower limb.
Four works about a new absorber and effects of the vibrations of the machine
elements are presented.
Five very interesting works about mechanical design and control of parallel
mechanisms and pulley systems are developed. All these works are new to the
literature and have a real scientific scoop.
Quadcopter and Mobile Robots
Four interesting works, about different methods of control and localization, are
done with high professionalism and scientist methodology.
Finally the book is simultaneously, reach in its contents and short in its volume.
Acknowledgements
This work would not have appeared without the support of several persons and
companies. We have to support the Lebanese ministry of industry, mainly the
minister who participated personally in the opening. Special thanks to the Faculty
of Engineering of the Lebanese University mainly to the Dean who support greatly
the conference. We thank also the Lebanese association for the advancement of
sciences and the IFToMM.
Of course great thanks for all the sponsors, the Alumni of the faculty of engineering
and the AUF (French agency for francophone universities). Finally special
thanks for the reader and happy reading.
