Papers regarding German engineer Franz Reuleaux and the collection of his kinematic models housed at Cornell University. Papers were assembled by Cornell Professor of Engineering Frank Moon during the late 1990's and early 2000's, particularly during research trips to Germany. They include Moon's research notes on Reuleaux and Reuleaux's influence, biography and genealogy; photocopies and transcriptions of letters, essays and drawings created by Reuleaux; Moon's academic papers and professional work on Reuleaux; and research on Cornell's kinematic model collection and other kinematic models. Papers also include material on specific projects, such as the permanent exhibit of Reuleaux's kinematic models at Cornell, and the Kinematic Models for Design Digital Library (KMODDL), an online collection of digitized images and information on kinematics.
Collection material in English


Francis Charles Moon is the Joseph C. Ford Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University.
Franz Reuleaux (1829-1905), a German engineer of Belgian heritage, was an influential figure in machine design and kinematics, or the science of movement. He was known for designing more than 800 teaching models to demonstrate kinematic principles. He contributed to the development of engineering as a professional science, integrating mathematical and scientific principles into engineering design. Born in Eschweiler in Prussia, he studied under Ferdinand Redtenbacher at Karlsruhe, and also studied in Berlin and Bonn. After teaching in Zurich at the Polytechnic School, he taught at what became the Koenigs Technischen Hochschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg Berlin for many years, becoming its rector in 1890. As a prominent engineer, he was a German ambassador at international exhibitions and expositions, including the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876 and the Vienna Exhibition in 1873.
