International conference in Ulyanovsk
On October 17, 2014, representatives of Ulyanovsk research and technological center (URTC) of VIAM took part in IV International theoretical and practical conference «Systems for control of life cycle of aviation engineering: actual problems, researches, implementation experience and prospects for development». The event was held at Ulyanovsk aviation plant (Aviastar-SP).
Within the frames of the conference, Vyacheslav Postnov, director of URTC, headed a section «Usage of up-to-date composite materials in aviation engineering», where specialists of URTC presented their reports.
For example, Ivan Pletin’, deputy director of URTC, told about the role and effect of design and materials of curvilinear substrates on stability of properties of PCM components. Ruslan Satdinov reported about experience in the field of process control of PCM semiproducts manufacture and about technique for trying-out of PCM production conditions. Maria Postmova focused her report on up-to-date methods of thermal analysis for studies of properties of prepregs and materials on their base.
As Vyacheslav Postnov reported, «results and means of the enhancement of development efficiency were discussed in the course of the conference, commercialization of science-consuming technologies for control of life cycle of aviation engineering during production and operation was considered as well».
The theoretical and practical conference was launched by Ulyanovsk State University and Aviastar-SP in 2010. About 250 representatives of largest aviation enterprises, airlines, design bureaus, research organizations and university took part in the event.
