Federal State Unitary Enterprise the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute Named After Prof. N.E. Zhukovsky (TSAGI)

Organisation profile

The Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) named after prof. N/E/ Zhukovsky is one of the largest scientific research centres in the world. During 90 years it has gained a unique experience of fundamental research and applied investigations on aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, aeroelasticity, flight dynamics, strength, acoustics, etc. TSAGI test facilities include a complex of wind tunnels and gas dynamic research installations, static and dynamic strength labs, thermal strength and acoustics chambers, propulsion system and compressor test benches. During its distinguished history TSAGI has developed new aerodynamic configurations, aircraft stability/controllability criteria, and strength requirements. TsAGI was a pioneer in the theory of flutter, divergence and reversal of control along with many other theories, applications and experimental studies.

Role in the project

TSAGI is involved in SP6 devoted to:

  • Developing (statistical) numerical models for ice-particle trajectories which address both dynamic and thermal aspects
  • Developing numerical models for computing the impingement of ice-particles on a dry or a wet surface and considers influencing parameters such as particle size, particle velocity, particle temperature, film thickness, wall temperature or presence of liquid water around the particle ice core.
  • Developing and validating numerical models for computing ice accretion phenomena and predicting ice growth on a surface impacted by ice crystals.
