Abstract
The stern rudder is attached movable mechanism of the vessel, aft
of the stern, taking advantage of the hydrodynamic currents generated at sea
and current ejection providing propellers, varies with its movement path of the
ship. Not being the only mechanical system that performs this essential
function, yes it is, the more operational and rapid implementation.
This article seeks to contextualize their emergence and development
from an engineering perspective, as a method of government (Greek κυβερνειν
kubernein "piloting a boat") of vessels. Under study since its inception, in
addition to the different systems that preceded it. Then, its expansion is
exposed by the different cultures of the Middle Ages and its evolution over time,
consistent with the technological evolution of engineering, reaching rudders
used today. Finally analyzing the design and functions of different systems
governments used today and general aspects of its dynamics.

INTRODUCCION
El Timón es el mecanismo utilizado para maniobrar un medio de
transporte que se mueve a través de un fluido. Funciona con ayuda de aparejos
de cuadernales o de motones, orientando el fluido y generando un efecto de
giro o de empuje. Cuando el timón está situado en línea respecto a la marcha
del buque, se dice que el timón está a la vía, por tanto, su efecto es
prácticamente nulo y solo ofrece la resistencia hidrodinámica debida al
rozamiento. No obstante, el buque, en ocasiones, y debido a la acción del mar,
