TsAGI’s Best 2023 Research Papers Chosen

3 June 2024

In aircraft industry, R&T capacities are determined by advanced developments by Russian scientists. To reveal best developments enabling technological progress, TsAGI (a part of NRC “Zhukovsky Institute”) Competition is held. May 23 saw the awarding ceremony of 2023 Competition winners.

The winners were chosen within three research areas, Best fundamental and applied theoretical and experimental studies in aircraft aerodynamics, dynamics and strength; Best research in aircraft aerodynamics, dynamics, strength and development prospects; and Best research in experimental technologies, experimental measuring, controlling and computing systems, and experimental methods.

‘Traditionally, TsAGI Competition reveals best papers by our scientists playing a key role in domestic aircraft industry. Many studies were carried out in close cooperation with design bureaus and plants, meeting contemporary challenges and peculiarities of current domestic policy and economy. So the papers were assessed mostly for their practical capacity to increase domestic defense capacity and technological independence,’ said Sergey Lyapunov, Competition Organizing Committee Chairman; Deputy General Director and Head at Aerohydrodynamics Center, TsAGI.

The first nomination was won by the paper, Kinetic effects and similarity parameters in classical tasks of dispersed gas dynamics, by A. Abramov, O. Buzykin, and A. Butkovsky. The second prize went to the paper, Noise calculation for hybrid-propulsion and distributed-propulsion propellers at experimental modes and validation of calculating method. Noise calculation for hybrid-propulsion and distributed-propulsion propellers at takeoff and landing to choose quiet configuration, by G. Faranosov, V. Titaryov, R. Akinshin, and O. Bychkov. The third prize went to the joint TsAGI—Yakovlev research, Applying AI methods to monitor loads of landing gear units using flight recorder data, by Yu. Svirsky, P. Bessonov, A. Bautin (TsAGI); and V. Kleptsov (Yakovlev).

In the second nomination, the first prize was won by the study, Integrated calculations and tests aimed at aeroelastic safety of S-70 Okhotnik, by Ye. Arnautov (Gromov Flight Research Institute), A. Godin (Sukhoi Design Bureau), and S. Yelsov, D. Kazantsev and Yu. Naiko (TsAGI). The second and third prize went to two relevant studies by TsAGI teams.

The third nomination was won by a relevant study by TsAGI team. Another award was given to the paper, Summing up results of developing microphone array measuring methods to localize and range aerodynamic noise sources, by G. Faranosov, N. Ostrikov, M. Demyanov, O. Bychkov, and V. Bashkatov. The third prize went to the study, Research and development of multicomponent delta strain-gauge rosettes and the methods of their usage to measure principal plane strains, by M.A. Levchenko, Sh. Zagidullin, Ye. Zubov, and M.M. Levchenko.

TsAGI’s Best Research Competition dates back to 1967. According to the decree by its the-then Director General G. Svishchev, the competition aimed ‘to stimulate the research giving a deep essential understanding of the most important processes that reveal or explain revolutionarily new phenomena, theoretical or experimental ways of significant improvement of aircraft efficiency’. The research had to be genuine and was not supposed to repeat any results published before. The main areas of theoretical and experimental research included aerodynamics, aerohydrodynamics, dynamics, strength, aeroacoustics, and the issues related to developing test facilities of the Institute.
