ASME STS - Thursday, December 14, 2017 - "The Machine that Made History The Historic Landmark Waterwheel of Syria > 1000+ Years Ago!"
SPEAKER - Mahmod Samman, Ph.D., P.E
President, Houston Engineering Solutions
Houston, TX

BRIEF SYNOPSIS:

For thousands of years prior to the industrial revolution, the waterwheel was mankinds only means of harvesting and utilizing large quantities of energy.  Important in their own right, these ancient devices also paved the way for water mills, windmills, and modern turbines. The giant waterwheels that continue to operate on the river Orontes in Hama, Syria are unique in both size and age.  With a diameter of 21 meters (69 feet), the Noria al-Muhammadiyya which dates to 1361 CE, is among the largest waterwheels ever constructed. In 2006, it was designated as an ASME historic landmark. In 2015, ASME published Machines that Made History and featured this landmark on its cover. This presentation includes a discussion of the development and types of waterwheels, their role in mechanical engineering history, the significance of this ASME landmark, and a status update on its current condition given the state of war in the country.

SPEAKER'S BIOGRAPHY:

Dr. Samman holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from Duke University and is a licensed professional engineer in Texas.
