TsAGI represents Russia at ICAS 2016 International Congress in South Korea
14 October 2016
In late September the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the National Research “Center Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky”) took part in the 30th Congress of the International Council of Aeronautical Sciences — ICAS 2016. TsAGI is the official representative of Russia in this organization. The event was held in Daejeon (South Korea).
Scientists of the Institute presented more than 20 reports at the Congress. Their presentations focused on the aerodynamic, new aircraft designs, propulsion units, flight dynamics, control systems and history of aeronautics. Experts of the Russian center of aviation science were moderators in several sections.
This year scientific discussions were held in 12 directions, which contained about 120 topics. Around 450 verbal presentations were made in total. From ten or more parallel sessions as well as presentations of poster reports were held on the working days of the Congress.
The International Council of Aeronautical Sciences (ICAS) is a non-governmental non-profit organization aimed to promote international cooperation, free exchange of information and ideas. It is the only independent international organization in the field of aeronautics, which unites 30 countries and most of the key world organizations and companies in the industry. Russia (formerly — the USSR) has been a member of the ICAS since 1967.
The ICAS Congress is the largest scientific event in the aerospace sector, which brings together leading scientists and experts from around the world and is held every two years in different countries. Russia hosted the Congress in 2014 which was arranged by TsAGI.
In parallel with the ICAS Congress, South Korea hosted the 7th Summit of the International Forum for Aviation Research (IFAR). The Forum unites leading scientific and research organizations in the field of aeronautics such as JAXA, DLR, NASA, ONERA, NLR and others. TsAGI represents Russia in the IFAR. S.L. Chernyshev, Director General of TsAGI, made a report on priority areas of the Institute’s research work and also discussed with colleagues the issues of cooperation in the field of flight safety. This year a council of young IFAR researchers took part in the summit for the first time at the initiative of TsAGI.
The International Forum for Aviation Research (IFAR) is an association of national aviation scientific entities aimed at searching for main directions of the science and technologies development to advance the field of aeronautics.
