DORIN PAVEL FOUNDER STOCK SCIENTIFIC AND
ENGINEERING PROFESSOR OF MANY GENERATIONS
Whether what you present to join those described by my colleagues
who in the past have honored his memory and that of course will do more in the
future in shaping scientific personalities that Romania boasts. To speak
teacher, engineer, academician Dorin Paul is an act of courage for a speaker
who pressed for time, you cannot say what it would have said!
In these times you play Dorin Paul in another aspect, perhaps more
important than all those mentioned so far, creator of values them as human
science and teacher of many generations of engineers.

DORIN PAVEL FOUNDER STOCK SCIENTIFIC AND
VISIONS, INTERDISCIPLINARY AND COURAGE
IN PROJECTS DORIN PAVEL, I NEED
TO FOLLOW EXAMPLE
Vision and interdisciplinary are two essential characteristics drawn from the works of Paul Dorin and empowering solutions that treats its data hydroelectricity projects and electrification, electric traction and construction of dams, regulation of rivers are examples of the approach, basing solutions, sustainability their time and efficiency, synergy of different specialties called to participate in their realization. His vision in the development of projects anticipation explain technical solutions given by Dorin Paul and topical (dams, design principles, equipment) as well as some trends that will appear later in energy policies (diversification of energy resources and their complementarity, storage plants).

PROFESSOR DORIN PAVEL AND DANUBE HYDROGRAPHY
The paper presents a less known work of Dorin Pavel – engineering
outstanding personality in hydro-technical construction, namely Danube
Hydrography. Based on daily, monthly and yearly flows of the Danube recorded
at Cazane, setting the average, minimum and maximum values during 60
years, Dorin Pavel corrects the coefficients of some calculating formulas,
establishes relations between water height and flow, and manages to assess
what can get a hydraulic storage as electricity, namely the efficiency of
investment for a validated solution.
Knowing these records allows evaluating also other Danube hydrotechnical
construction, but as working methodology it could be generalized also
for other water courses.

INTERDISCIPLINARITY, A DOMINANT FEATURE
IN THE PROJECTS OF DORIN PAVEL
Interdisciplinary is a dominant feature common in the projects of Dorin
Pavel, whether they related to his base area, hydrology, or to the associated
equipment designed buildings, electrical applications, construction of bridges
It presents some significant elements and their contributions in making
some Romanian firsts.
Keywords: hydrology, equipment, interdisciplinary

A LESSER-KNOWN WORK OF DORIN PAVEL:
STUDY OF ELECTRIFICATION
This paper presents a „study electrification” made by Prof Dr Doc
Dorin Pavel since 1925, in which it addresses the problem of ensuring
electricity for railways in Romania if their electrification.
Technical problems are analyzed both electrical traction suggesting
solutions and investment cost.
News of those published 88 years ago, is found in the development of
electrified railway lines in Romania, the database solutions for electric drive
(alternating current at 50 Hz and High Tension) and the locations of plants.

DORIN PAVEL WHY CAN BE A MODEL
FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION ?
Today we are living a period of great transformation in the search and
find many truths, in weighing the value of money and material advantages tilt
the pan, we need models and Dorin Pavel may be one of them.
Most of us remember with respect, was not only a scientist but a
daring, proving that in his specialty had the vision and strength to show that
hard things can be accessible for a small country. He said in his memoirs with
some shadow of regret „that he was born a quarter century earlier.”
