George Constantinescu

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

George Constantinescu was born in Craiova, Romania back in 1881. His father was a professor of mathematics and engineering at Sorbonne University. He moved to England in 1912 where he stayed the rest of his life. While I can’t find anything about his education, when you read the rest of this post apparently, he was well educated.

He married Alexandra in 1914, the marriage broke down in the 1920’s. Now let’s get down to his inventions shall we.

If you are a military movie fan like me you’ll recognize during WWI and WWII fighter aircraft would have their machine guns behind the propellers firing rounds that never hit the blades. He invented the hydraulic machine gun synchronization gear that allowed that to happen. He developed several patents for improvement to carburetors, also some valves and the fuel injectors for diesel engines, a torque converter. All in all, he registered over 130 inventions. He died in 1965 in Coniston Water he was 84.

It sounds like he invented some pretty worthwhile stuff, definitely more than I have invented in my life.

Hello James - while reading your post, a similar comment as the one by Barbara Todaro came to mind.  I also wonder  about the stories of today's soldiers being impacted by video games in the same way.  I know there have been reports/studies completed theorizing this but I can't remember actual proof.  Wondering...

Good afternoon James - those were inventions that keep the military strong.  Doesn't say which side he was on.

Hi James... I wish I really understood what those inventions do, but I do understand how important they were.

Hi James- I am in awe of the men and women who invent or develop these things that I have no clue about but certainly are necessary.

As sad as wars are, it seems to be a time of innovation and creation.

James Dray, although I do not like talking about weapons of war, as you know, I can still appreciate that George Constantinescu was a great Romanian scientist, engineer and inventor.  Have a wonderful week, James.
