"George Constantinescu created a new branch of science within continuous medium mechanics, concerning vibration transmission of power: Sonics. One of his outstanding inventions is the Mechanical couple converter, which can automatically transmit the power from an engine or other power generator, to a driven (secondary) shaft. Its use includes tool-machines, locomotives, cars and so on. Using the couple converter transmission system simplifies the traditional mechanism of transmission to driving forecarriages made up by clutch, gearbox, longitudinal transmission (cardan axle), differential and planet shaft cone group. The couple converter secures a progressive coupling and a continuous and automatic accommodation of car movement to the changing resistance to advance."

"In 1936, Petre Cristea together with Gogu Constantinescu and Ionel Zamfirescu won the Monte Carlo Rally on a Ford modified by the three, succeeding the first victory of Ford in this famous rally."

What Will Your Next Car Look Like?

"...It is the nearest approach on the market today to the dream of a gear-shiftless car with an infinite range of speeds, virtually a speed for every added revolution of the engine. Several years ago a Greek engineer in London named Constantinesco developed a torque converter which eliminated gear shifting, and it was tried with some success, but has not as yet proven practical in volume production.

The theory of the Constantinesco device requires higher mathematics and considerable knowledge of physics to explain or understand, but in operation it allows the engine to idle without transmitting motion to the wheels. When the accelerator is depressed and the engine speeds up the torque converter changes its motion and begins to impart rotary motion to the shaft, the speed of the motion depending on the engine speed and the resistance of the car. In other words, starting from a dead stop, the device imparts the engine revolutions to the transmission in the form of few revolutions at high power, and as the car gets under way and resistance decreases the converter changes its movement and transmits more revolutions at less power. It automatically adjusts its speed to the power required to overcome resistance."
