Who is the name of the father of machines
A brief history of the steam engine
20th February 2019
The industrial revolution also boiled only with water - more precisely with steam, which drove the pistons of machines, pumps and locomotives. But the new technological possibilities also harbored unknown dangers. In our brief history of the steam engine, we tell how steam power was discovered, what risks it entailed and how the steam boiler monitoring associations protected people from the technology.
As you know, in the beginning there was fire. With it, our ancestors were able to drive away wild animals, burn vessels from clay, turn indigestible roots into nutritious food and hostile places into a home. Since then, mankind has been constantly developing new ideas to make the elements usable: With wind power, grain was ground into flour and sailed across the oceans to unknown shores. Hydropower could be used to grind or saw wood. But wind doesn't blow everywhere, ships and wind turbines stand still when there is calm. And the more reliable hydropower cannot always be generated where it can be used to drive water wheels, pumps or saws. It was only with the invention of the steam engine that propulsion energy promised anywhere on earth - and performance that even workhorses could not keep up with. James Watt is often celebrated as her father. But the Scottish inventor was by no means the first to grapple with the technology.
