Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ITAM), Siberian Branch of RAS is involved in a project to develop Russia's reusable Clipper spacecraft, told reporters on Monday the director of IMPA Vasily Fomin.
"The Institute is involved in the blowing, and in the calculations," - he said at a meeting in preparation for the International Youth Forum innovative, Interra, which will be held in Novosibirsk from 10 to 12 September.
He also noted that the IMPA is conducting research in the field of hypersonic aircraft.
"At hypersonic wings are very small, and the fuselage will be an all-body, it will be so-called waveriders, but there is only a draft," - said V. Fomin.
He also said that in the spring of this year concluded an agreement between ITAM and NAPO im.Chkalova drafted replace riveted joints on the technology of laser welding.
"We need to get in VIAM (All-Russia Research Institute of Aircraft Materials - IF), they must take it to the test to itself, we now agree with them, and they will do it", - said V. Fomin.
According to him, the cooperation program with the SB RAS NAPO im. Chkalov provides several areas of cooperation, in particular - as a cold gas dynamic spraying anti-corrosion coating, the use of nanomaterials, etc.
Meanwhile, in an interview to the Information Agency "Interfax-Siberia" Fomin noted that developments in the aircraft industry is now the technology was developed several decades ago.
"The ideas were, and materials are not created. But after 40 years, there were composites, the strength better than steel and lighter, and the idea came back to life - for example, wings on the reverse sweep - to combat vehicles in general find it" - he said.
Also, he noted, has a long history and pattern "aircraft wing", but the first models were not very stable.
"There was electronics, which can keep track of it all, and again was this idea," - he said.
At the same time, notes Fomin, fundamentally new ideas in the aircraft industry in recent years did not appear.
"What a stunning yet was not. Now all the focus on the creation of a hypersonic aircraft - of course it will, first of all, the military, to" citizen "him away," - says a scientist.
Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. Khristianovich Siberian Branch of RAS (ITAM SB RAS) was established in 1957.
The Institute has a hypersonic wind tunnel AT-303, the world's only able to recreate 100% flight conditions.
Main scientific interests: mathematical modeling in mechanics, Aerogasdynamics, physico-chemical mechanics, solid mechanics, deformation and fracture.
