Another scientific and technical conference in aerodynamics held at TsAGI

25 April 2016

The XXVII Scientific and Technical Conference in Aerodynamics was held on April 21–22. The event was conducted by the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after N. E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI) under the auspices of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.

The conference agenda covered a wide range of issues, in particular: aircraft aerodynamics, including that of helicopters and unmanned aircraft; high-speed aerodynamics; computational & theoretical aerodynamics; experimental aerodynamics; propulsion unit aerodynamics; practices for designing models for experiments in aerodynamics and; flight dynamics. Scientists from TsAGI, as well as their colleagues from FSUE TsIAM, Gromov FRI PJSC, MIPT, Lomonosov MSU, GSS JSC, Irkut Corporation PJSC, Tupolev PJSC, Kamov OJSC, etc., elaborated on their scientific achievements.

Over 100 spoken reports were presented at the event by the Institute staff members, including those concerning laminar flow control, noise level reduction, airframe integration of propulsion units, low noise flaps, methods for actively influencing flow, etc. Reports on studies concerning super heavy aircraft, aerodynamic configurations of promising wide-body, long-range aircraft and supersonic passenger aircraft were of particular interest to the conference participants.

Achievements of TsAGI’s Computer Modeling Center named after O. M. Belotserkovsky were showcased. Speeches addressed the experience of experimental data preparation done for verifying the validity of computer programs, which, in turn, allows for substantial improvement in complex separation flow calculations.

Sergey Chernyshev, Director General of TsAGI and a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, spoke during the conference opening ceremony. In particular, he made the following point: “Aerodynamics is an area of science, where Russia is still competitive. In this regard, our conference serves as an important link in establishing priorities for studies to be held in the upcoming years.”
