TsAGI takes part in All-Russian Conference on Advanced Aviation Materials Development

2 July 2019

The application of composite materials is an important topic addressed by the aircraft engineers all over the world. Late in June, foreign and domestic company leaders and experts presented their achievements at the 5th All-Russian Technical Conference ‘Implementing Strategic Priorities for Materials and their Processing till 2030 year: A Fundamental Research’.

The event was organized by the All-Russian Research Institute of Aviation Materials (VIAM) to celebrate its 87-th anniversary. A very important report was made at the plenary meeting by Kirill Sypalo, Corresponding Member of RAS and General Director of TsAGI (the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky, a part of the National Research Center Zhukovsky Institute NRC). The report covered, in particular, TsAGI’s work on implementing composites to critical power units of the aircraft frame.

‘For several years, our experts have been studying the strength of new composites, in order to apply them in modern airliner structures. For this, we have used advanced methods of nondestructive testing, such as contactless frequency tests and measurements in wind tunnels, up-to-date telemetry systems, evaluation of local shock damage, etc. It has already been proven that composites provide a 15-20%-lighter structure. Safety and service life increase by 1.5-2 times. Composites also reduce development and production time as well as costs,’ Kirill Sypalo said.

The conference continued with sections work where participants made reports on such timely issues as additive technologies, polymeric and metallic composites, light aluminum, titanium, and magnesium-based alloys, welding and soldering procedures, etc.

The 5th All-Russian Technical Conference ‘Implementing Strategic Priorities for Materials and their Processing till 2030 year: A Fundamental Research’ was attended by participants from 90 organizations and over 190 experts from various industry branches. The conference proceedings will be published in a special issue of VIAM’s “Aviation Materials and Technologies” magazine.
