Abstract

In the first half of XXth century one of the most well-known scientific and pedagogical schools of Applied mechanics was the Imperial Moscow Technical School (IMTS), led by Leonid Smirnov. A number of its graduates became prominent scientists and founded their own scientific and pedagogical schools. A significant segment of prof. Simonov’s activity took place in an extremely difficult period of life in Russia. In the conditions of transition from empire to the Soviet Union the concept of learning had to be repeatedly changed.

This paper describes the evolution of the course of Applied Mechanics, which was devoted to TMM, by Professor L. Smirnov in the 1st half of the XXth century. The books «Kinematics of Mechanisms and Machines» and «Kinetics of Mechanisms and Machines», published in 1926, «Applied Mechanics Info sheets» and «Methodical Text-books for Carrying-out Graphical Works in Applied Mechanics» were developed by Professor L. Smirnov in collaboration with his students. Basing itself on these works, the TMM Department of Bauman university prepared and issued a series of lecture notes for all sections of the TMM course, transformed laboratory practice, produced a series of compilations of tasks for course projects and subsequently published a textbook on the TMM in the 1950-60s.
