Delegation of TsAGI specialists take part in the XVIII International Conference on Methods of Aerophysical Research (ICMAR 2016)
15 July 2016
From June 27 to July 3, the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (part of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky”) participated in the XVIII International Conference on Methods of Aerophysical Research (ICMAR 2016), which was held at the site of the Perm National Research Polytechnic University.
The scientific forum was organized by the National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, the Russian National Committee of the International Organization IFToMM, the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics named after S.A. Khristianovich of the Siberian Branch of RAS, the Perm Scientific Centre of the Ural Branch of RAS, the Institute of Continuous Media Mechanics of the Ural Branch of RAS, the Perm National Research Polytechnical University and Aviadvigatel JSC.
The participants of the Conference discussed several currently important issues, among them — the diagnostic methods in aerophysical studies; aerogasdynamics computing methods and application software systems; aerophysical research in interdisciplinary problems and; aerospace technologies.
On the first day of the Conference within the framework of the plenary meeting, Sergey Chernyshev, Director General of TsAGI, presented the report “About the priorities of scientific research aimed to provide a technological reserve of the modern aviation industry.” In his speech, Sergey Chernyshev noted: “It is clear that technological reserve is diverse and includes fundamental research. However, it is important that new technologies are brought to the high level of availability at the end of the scientific work, among other things through the development of demonstrators. The effectiveness of new solutions must be confirmed by calculations, experiments, ground and flight tests, so the aircraft manufacturers could without any doubts use the proposals of scientists to develop new products.”
Among 200 reports at the international conference, more than 40 of them were presented by TsAGI specialists. The main topics of presentations can be divided into four groups: development of new experimental facilities, modernization and improvement of existing experimental facilities, testing equipment and methods, and fundamental research in wind tunnels.
Within the framework of the Conference, the TsAGI delegation visited the new experimental laboratory of the Perm State University. This laboratory was created under the supervision of Victor Kopyev, the Head of Aeroacoustics and Aviation Ecology Division of TsAGI.
It should be noted that for the first time in the history of ICMAR the section “Problems and tasks in the field of acoustics” was organized. It was attended by TsAGI specialists, which together with the scientists of Aviadvigatel JSC and the Central Institute of Aviation Motor Development solve acoustic problems in an effort to create gas-turbine engines relevant to current and future ICAO standards.
