STUDY ON THE REALIZATION OF A NEW PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT ROUTE IN SIBIU CITY
In Sibiu several new residential areas have been built in recent years. The public transport network must be developed to include the new neighbourhoods, as long as they have been built in areas that do not have available routes nearby. Such a neighbourhood is the Magnolia residence, built in a neighbouring area of Sibiu, with a single access road and no connection to the public transport network. The paper presents the studies made to design the new route, which in the meantime has been opened and proved to be effective for the inhabitants of the Magnolia area.

The statistical research paper shows the important aspects, instruments and methods for analyze and monitoring the relation of wealth and health with their influence on the environment. Everybody wants to gain wealth and to have health, but that is not so simple, having a great toll on entire life. In the present paper there are presented some aspects of a particular idea, namely the influence which has the wealth on the health, considering production and marketing capacity. Our country is small when it comes of its surface, number of inhabitants or production capacity in comparison with most developed countries. The present paper underlines the statistics considering the wealth of a country or region influence upon health status. The richest countries in the world aren’t the healthiest ones. The economics took over all the sectors and everybody searching only for profit they forgot the fact that this gold rush has a great negative impact on their health. The carcinogenic influence of animal and high processed products compared with the organic plant based ones is amplified when is coupled with industry and urban pollution.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO STATISTICAL ANALISIS OF AUTOMOTIVE SECTOR AND TRANSPORT POTENTIAL ON NATIONAL AND LOCAL LEVEL
The statistical analyze made in this paper shows the significant aspects, values and potential for development and investments in transport sector on national and local levels in Romania, with consideration of their influence also on the environment. The transport is one of the most developed activities developed by humans. It affects everybody and also the environment as a whole. Our country is focusing right now on transport activities, because since 2007, after integration there are increasing preoccupations for import and export activities. Predominantly importing materials and goods needs a lot of transportation to be made. Also people traveling between countries also need transportation and vehicles to do these trips. Many companies have been developed in the last 2 decades in order to meet these requirements of the market. There are no studies to show how far has been gone with this transportation development and which is the trend. The economics is close related to the transport activity or else it would not be done. The environmental impact is also great with high transportation activities, even if there are newer vehicles registered every year. The present paper shows the vehicle registration both in Cluj and on national level for different types of vehicles, especially those which are negatively impacting the environment and the economic activities, the market and society.

BRAZING OF AlMn1/Ni 201 CLADDED WITH Ag45CuZnSn
Brazing aluminium to nickel plates it is a very sensible process being influenced by physical brazing parameters, brazing devices, but also by type of materials used. Brazing process was carried out in a horizontally furnace under a controlled nitrogen atmosphere containing several enclosures. They were used two dissimilar base metals (an aluminium alloy and pure nickel) and the filler metal was the Ag45CuZnSn clad of the nickel base metal; this type of filler metal led to a brazed joint with percentages of defects below 6%, due to its very good adhesion to both the brazable surfaces of the base metals involved.

Starting from the analysis of two modern sintering methods for metallic powders, respectively sintering in the mold and electro sintering, and knowing the technological possibilities of lamps discharged in gas, with high intensity, in the present paper the author proposes a new sintering process combining electro sintering with the action of optical radiation impulses emitted by lamps discharged in gas. The recommended electro technical regime and scheme of the experimental plant are described in detail in the article.

MATHEMATICAL MODELLING MEAN RESISTANCES TENSILE STEEL WELDED JOINTS BY RESISTANCE LOW ALLOY TENSILE BASIC MATERIALS
In the paper are elaborated the mathematical models of two types of low alloy steels used for the construction of fluids for the transport of fluids. The experimental study was conducted on two types of low alloyed steels: steel 13CrMo4-5 and 16Mo3. The correlation between the average tensile breaking strengths of the welded joints (untreated or heat treated by stress) by means of the processes 111, 141 and 511, as well as the breaking strength of the base materials (13CrMo4-5 and 16Mo3) according to the linear energy used for welding.

THE FLATTENING OF THE SPIRAL CASING SHELLS USING THE SOLIDWORKS SHEET METAL MODULE
The vibratory phenomena of bearings even appear even their surfaces are perfect. These vibrations are caused by the rotation of a finite number of rollers required between the two rings. Obviously, depending on the processing conditions, certain irregularities may occur. These irregularities lead to a series deviations from the normal contact between the rollers and the bearing rings. Two models of radial vibration: oval and triangular were studied.

INFLUENCE OF OWN FREQUENCIES
ON THE PLANE TRUSSES
In the paper is presented the way in which the own frequencies influence the good functioning of the plane trusses. The four types of trusses: Howe, Pratt, Warren with and without vertical beams were built and modeled with finite elements using the SolidWorks program. The experimental analysis was carried out on the particular stand developed for this kind of trusses. For the acquisition and processing of data, I use Kistler accelerometers and the LabVIEW program.

EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS ACQUIRING THROUGH APPLING A GRAPHICAL METHOD FOR OPTIMIZATION OF SPHERE-CYLINDER SHELL UNDER INTERNAL PRESSURE
Paper presents the analysis results of the stress state for the optimized through the graphical method of sphere-cylinder shell proposed by Dora Florea in the paper .The optimized contour with the programme SPLINE29 was enforce the achievement for the von Mises equivalents stress value of 17.8 MPa as analyzed by NASTRAN V.4.0  programme. The profile presents a variation of the equivalents von Mises stress in the interval 15.18 MPa and 18.55 MPa. The maxim variation relative of the imposed stress for the optimization is 0.76 MPa with plus and 2.62 MPa with minus. In a critical point the variation of stress is 1.74 MPa.
