Russia to create new aircraft needed wind tunnel T-204, informed “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, the General Director of Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, RAS corresponding member Kirill Showered.
According to him, the Institute “moderniziriruyutsya almost all settings” and the construction of new wind tunnels. “We have approached the limits of technology development. We need more full-scale conditions of the experiment given the fact that the flight experiment is always more expensive than pipeline. So one of the trends is the transition to cryogenic pipes when air is used instead of cryogenic gas, which allows much closer to natural experiment,” said the CEO.
Sprinkled added that installation that simulate various atmospheric layers play an important role in the creation of modern aircraft, as, for example, the flights of the main aircraft are at the height of 11-12 km.
“We think about the pipe T-204 — new transonic, which is the possibility of modeling the layers of the atmosphere that will allow you to experience both airplanes and helicopters,” said Sprinkled.
In January, Deputy Director of the National Institute of aviation technologies, head of the scientific-methodical center of “Normal”, doctor of technical Sciences Vasily Podkolzin said that the “black wing” of the Russian short and medium-haul passenger aircraft MS-21 is created by Western technology from foreign carbon fiber and a polymer binder.
