Born in Craiova in “the Doctor’s House” near the Mihai Bravu Gardens, he was fogu by his father George, born in a professor of mathematics and engineering science, specialized in mathematics at the Sorbonne University.

The maximum and minimum points do not move along the pipe, and no energy flows from generator a. For pipes with greater diameter greater velocity can be achieve for same value of k. His hydraulic machine gun synchronization gear allowed airplane-mounted guns to shoot between the spinning blades of the propeller.

The couple moved to Wembley and, after their son Ian was born, they moved to Weybridge. So every four months he get a patent for an invention, patents that reachingabout they were unique and amazing for that time undiscovered yet until then.

George Constantinescu Mathematical physics Romanian inventions. At next rotation the amplitude is increased, and so on, till the pipe burst.

The laws discovered by Constantinescu, used in sonicity are the same with the laws used in electricity. Figure V Waves are transmitted by a reciprocating piston along the pipe eeee.

In he has also published materials cobstantinescu its usage, calculus and he has tested the usage of this material in arch bridges. Later on, in his life, he has projected several well-known buildings throughout the country including the Sports Stadium ,the Donstantinescu Commerce building, and the Constanta mosque.


Constantinescu argued that, contrary to popular belief, liquids are compressible. His inventions patents were obtained in countries like: We try to publish to let you know some of the personalities, Great, Huge, Fabulous Romanian Inventors who changed the world. George “Gogu” Constantinescu Romanian pronunciation: Share on Pinterest Share.

Hydraulic condensers are appliances for making alterations in value of fluid currents, pressures or phases of alternating fluid currents. Share on LinkedIn Share. Constantinesci most important findings are; — the asphalt, modern road rail vehicles — the theory of sonicity; power transmission through liquids, solids and gases, — device for firing synchronized bombers of World War I, — the use of reinforced concrete sleepers straight bridge, — railway motor wagon, — the first automatic transmission cars and locomotives without clutch consstantinescu Gear — first glider in the world — first sonic radiator — several patents for improvements the diesel engines carburettors — mechanical torque converter actuated by a pendulum,Constantinescu cannon sonic converter.

Constantinescu has studied at the Constantihescu and Roads School in The principal function of hydraulic condensers is to counteract inertia effects due to moving masses.

Both transmit the waves produced by oscillationsas well as the energy and power included in these waves, thus managing to transmit energy and power at small, medium, large, even constanitnescu large distances, controlling and controlling the phenomena and processes conztantinescu a distance or a large distance. Figure IV If more energy is produced by piston b then is taken by piston m the energy will be reflected by piston m in pipe, and the energy will accumulate till the pipe burst.


In the condenser we will have: Wikimedia Commons has media related to George Constantinescu. We can say that what Tesla did in electronics, Constantinescu succeeded in mechanics.

Theory of sonics

If valve b is open, the motor m is able to take the energy from the line, the stationary half-wave between a and b being replaced by a traveling wave; between b and p a stationary wave will persist. From to his first invention until the year of his death, in his most prolific constatinescu, Constantinescu will average an invention patent per month.

The birth of the theory of sonics [1] can be considered the publication of the book A treatise on transmission of power by vibrations in by the Romanian scientist Gogu Constantinescu. Thanks to him, the first road in Romania has been paved.

The above equations are used in order to calculate the springs required for a condenser of a given capacity required to work at a given maximum stress. During his years as a student, he has promoted the usage of steel reinforced concrete to his students.
