Italian philosopher, mathematician, physicist and astronomer; Galilei is considered one of the founders of modern mechanics as a science

Galileo played a crucial role in the grounding of mechanism science as a natural science. Based on mechanics, he established and improved a scientific method of acquiring knowledge. Here the systematic monitoring of mechanical actions followed the recognition of quantifiable variables, the empirical analysis and decomposition of the problem, replacing the mechanical process by a mathematical model, the deductive derivation of a hypothesis and its experimental verification, which may brought a new modified approach. It was Galilei who made the experiment an empirical basis of science and technology and a test field of scientific theories, at the same time he brought a calculative element into mechanics. Galilei's contribution to the beam deflection can be considered as a justification of the theory of elasticity.
