George “Gogu” Constantinescu Romanian pronunciation: During his career, he registered over inventions. He is the creator of the theory of sonicsa new branch of continuum mechanicsin which he described the transmission of mechanical energy through vibrations. Born in Craiova in “the Doctor’s House” near the Mihai Bravu Gardens, he was influenced by his father George, born contantinescu a professor of mathematics and engineering science, specialized in mathematics at the Sorbonne University.

He was an honorary member of the Romanian Academy. The couple moved to Wembley and, after their son Ian was born, they moved to Weybridge.

Eva had two children, Richard and Michael, by a previous marriage. His hydraulic machine gun synchronization gear allowed airplane-mounted guns to shoot between the spinning blades of the constantineacu.

The Constantinesco synchronization gear or “CC” gear was first used operationally on the D. Inhe published the book A treatise on transmission of power by vibrations [4] in which he described his Theory of sonics.

The theory is applicable to various constzntinescu of power transmission but has mostly been applied to hydraulic systems. Sonics differs from hydrostaticsbeing based on waves, rather than pressure, in the liquid.

Constantinescu argued that, contrary to popular belief, liquids are compressible. He had several patents for improvements to carburetorsfor example US He invented constantimescu mechanical torque converter actuated by a pendulum.

It was also tried on rail vehicles. A hp petrol engined locomotive with a Constantinescu torque converter was exhibited at the Wembley Exhibition.

The system was not adopted on British railways but it was applied to some railcars on the Romanian State Railways. Other inventions included a “railway motor wagon”. The latter ran on normal flanged steel wheels but the drive used a road vehicle powertrain with rubber tyres pressed against the rails. This is similar to the system constantinescy on many modern road-rail vehicles.
