MAI as the platform for the meeting of mathematical modelling experts on MAKS-2021
On July 21-22, Moscow Aviation Institute held the II International Online "Mathematical Modelling" Conference as part of the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2021.
On the first day of the conference, there was a section for Ph.D. students and young scientists on two tracks. On the second day, plenary and breakout sessions were held on the topics "Mathematical Modelling and Digital Twins" and "Mathematical Modelling of Physical Processes and Phenomena".
At the plenary session reports were made by Mikhail Pogosyan, Rector of Moscow Aviation Institute, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Decheng Wang, Professor of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Sergey Abramov, Director of the Program Systems Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Yury Vizilter, Head of the Division “Intelligent Data, Technical Vision, Improved and Synthesized Vision Analysis Systems" of the State Research Institute of Aviation Systems, Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The meeting was carried out in mixed format at several sites. Experts made reports from the MAI studio, the event was broadcasted to one of the MAKS pavilions. The participants of the air show had the opportunity to follow the events in person and ask questions.
– Digital technologies cover all spheres of activity today, and the development of the aerospace industry is impossible without them. At all stages of the product life cycle, it is accompanied by the information that we can obtain as a result of modeling complex technical processes, – said Mikhail Pogosyan in his speech. – The aviation industry has always been one of the leaders of technological changes, and the development of mathematical modeling methods has recently radically changed the competitive environment in the industry. Today, it is impossible to bring a new product to the market in real time without the use of mathematical modeling methods, and almost all leaders in the area of the aerospace industry are aiming at the widespread use of such methods.
More than 150 people took part in the conference. The representatives of the State Research Institute of Aviation Systems, the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky, Central Institute of Aviation Engines named after P.I. Baranov, Institute for Problems in Mechanics named after A.U. Ishlinsky Russian Academy of Sciences, Research and Production Complex "Research Institute for Long-Range Radio Communication", JSC "Russian Space Systems", JSC "UEC-Aviadvigatel" and other leading organizations.
Participants from a number of higher educational institutions, in addition to the MAI, were Siberian State University of Science and Technology named after academician M.F. Reshetnev, St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University "LETI", Samara University, etc.
During the sessions, reports were made on the use of digital twins in the development of transformable reflectors for spacecraft; solving team navigation problems using a mini-batch adaptive optimization method; verification of mathematical models using experimental modal analysis and their use to assess changes in the technical state of gas turbine engine rotors and others.
