Abstract

One of the leading scientific and pedagogical schools of Bauman University in the first half of the 20th century was the school of Applied Mechanics—Professor Leonid Smirnov’s TMM. A number of well-known scientists who subsequently founded their own scientific and pedagogical schools came from it. This article describes the evolution of the teaching course in applied mechanics—the TMM of Professor L. Smirnov—in the 1st half of the 20th century. The main focus of his work was given to the comprehensive application of a graphic method of setting parameters for calculating machines.
