TsAGI project receives financing from the Russian Science Foundation
10 April 2017
Last March winners were announced for the open public tender to receive grants from the Russian Science Foundation for “the basic scientific research and exploratory scientific research by specific scientific teams.” Among the winners was a team from the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the Scientific Research Center “Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky”) — “Theoretical and experimental research of disturbances evolving at cores of localized eddies.”
According to the Project Leader, Dr. Phys.-Math.Sci. Professor Viktor Kopiev, “activities are focused at the intersection of two basic areas of turbulence research: stability of localized eddy flow, where ring vortex would be the simplest, and statistical description of line vortex evolving within inertial range of eddy flow. The project combined the efforts of two scientific teams — the Theoretical Aeroacoustics Department of TsAGI and the Theoretical Department of Physical Institute named after P.N. Lebedev of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The research is focused at the upcoming development of predictive theory of noise generation inside eddy flows and fundamentally new methods of noise abatement.”
The Russian Science Foundation was established by the RF President in 2013 to support basic and exploratory scientific research, as well as the scientific teams which lead the research in top-priority areas. Along with financing the projects related to basic scientific disciplines, the Russian Science Foundation grant funds international cooperation development, business cooperation between enterprises and higher education institutions, and research activities of young scientists.
