TsAGI scientific program at ICAS 2018

24 September 2018

A delegation of the Zhukovsky Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) participated in the 31st Congress of the International Council of Aeronautical Science ICAS 2018. The event was held from 9 to 14 September in the city of Belo Horizonte (Brazil).

An important TsAGI presentation was the lecture of TsAGI Chief Scientific Officer and Academician of Russian Academy of Science Sergey Chernyshev at the plenary meeting of the International Forum for aviation research (IFAR.) On behalf of IFAR, he presented a global overview of supersonic projects, as well as Russian studies on this topic. The report compared first generation supersonic passenger airliners, the Tu-144 and Concorde, with modern noise and environmental requirements for aircraft, analysis of new developments in this area, achievements of Russian scientists and basic perspectives and challenges of supersonic civil aviation. Speaking of global studies, Sergey Chernyshev identified the RUMBLE project (“standard and norm of low level sonic boom”), a united effort of leading European scholars of the Airbus Group Innovations, ONERA, Dassault Aviation and colleagues from TsAGI and other Russian aviation enterprises.

“Supersonic travel opens the door to the future,” Sergey Chernyshev said. “For example, the trip from Moscow to Vladivostok and back can be carried out in one day. The maximum distance that you can fly per day now is 3500 km, and it will increase to 7500 km. I would like to note that our Institute scientists are involved in the most advanced research, including international projects on the creation of supersonic air transport.”

At ICAS 2018 TsAGI specialists delivered reports on current issues of aeronautical science development: icing research, aero-and hydrodynamics, numerical modeling, strength and aeroelastic response of airframe, cryogenic fuels and composite materials application, and new multi-mission aircraft development. The audience was interested in particular by the flow control reports, ways to improve structural data of aircraft elements, development of airframe monitoring methods, etc. About 30 reports were presented, most of them were delivered by young TsAGI scientists.

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.

IFAR, the International Forum for Aviation Research, is the world´s only aviation research establishment network. IFAR aims to connect research organizations worldwide, to enable the information exchange and communication on aviation research activities and to develop among its members a shared understanding on challenges faced by the global aviation research community. The IFAR members are 26 centers from all over the world. TsAGI represents Russia in IFAR.
