Conference on Computational Mechanics started in Alushta
The XXII International Conference on Computational Mechanics and Modern Applied Software Systems started in MAI "Alushta" health and training center. The event is organized by Moscow Aviation Institute and the Russian National Committee for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics.
The conference is held every two years and brings together leading Russian and foreign experts in computational mechanics, mathematical modeling and information technology. This year, due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of full-time conference participants is limited to 150 people.
The opening ceremony of the conference was held on September 5 at the Green Theater. The Director of MAI Institute No. 8 "Information Technologies and Applied Mathematics" Sergey Krylov, the Director of the Scientific Research Institute of Applied Mechanics and Electrodynamics, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Garry Popov, Soviet and Russian astrophysicist, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Mikhail Marov, Soviet and Russian mechanical scientist, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Valery Matveenko, as well as Corresponding Members of the Russian Academy of Sciences Damir Gubaidullin and Valery Kalinchuk gave warm welcome to the participants of the event.
“The XXII International Conference on Computational Mechanics and Modern Applied Software Systems is dedicated to the Year of Science and Technology,” said Sergey Krylov. – The main focus of the conference is the application of information technologies and computing systems for solving experimental problems of fluid and gas mechanics, such as calculating combustion processes and the flow of liquid and gases in rocket and aircraft engines for various purposes: from the most powerful to low-thrust electric rocket engines. The use of modern methods of mathematical modeling, including artificial intelligence, in combination with supercomputer computing resources, can significantly reduce the cost of development, certification, production and operation of high-tech products, making their use more environmental friendly and cost-effective.”
Mikhail Marov, Valery Matveenko and Sergey Krylov made reports at the plenary session. Thus, Sergey Krylov made a presentation on IT training of engineers using individual educational trajectories at Moscow Aviation Institute. He paid special attention to the work of MAI competence centers, such as "Mathematical Modeling", "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles" and the IT Center. He spoke about the university master programs aimed at future digital engineers training, focusing on the "Technologies for supercomputer modeling of complex technical systems" direction. He also announced the second spring session of the MAI “Mathematical Modeling” Youth School, which is to be launched in Alushta in May 2022.
After the plenary session the main part of the conference started, and there were nine topics covered: “Theory and practice of modern modeling. High-performance computing”, “Information technologies: databases and data warehouses, artificial intelligence methods, neural networks, image processing”, “General mechanics, mechanics of deformable solid bodies. Strength, Destruction and Safety of Structures”, “Mechanics of Liquid, Gas and Plasma. Aerothermodynamics of hypersonic speeds", “General problems and models of continuum mechanics at different scale levels", "Classical and celestial mechanics, mechatronics, biomechanics", "Problems of control theory", "Aerospace mechanics. Problems of the creation and operation of aerospace technology", “Computer training. Modern computer technologies and training of specialists for the rocket and space industry". The participants will present reports reflecting modern achievements in these areas.
This year many students from Moscow Aviation Institute and other universities attended the conference and presented their reports in a stand up format.
The conference will run until September 13. The event traditionally becomes a point of consolidation of scientists working in the area of computational mechanics and methods of mathematical modeling of complex systems and processes, helps to exchange opinions as well as to establish partnerships between various scientific schools and centers.
