A MEETING IN THE SIBERIAN BRANCH OF RAS
On August 20, 2015, Sergey V. Panin, head of G. V. Akimov Gelendzhik climatic testing center, branch of VIAM (GCTC VIAM), and Oleg V. Starstev, deputy head of GCTC, participated in a meeting for the research of aging strength and corrosion of materials under different climatic conditions. The event was held at the House of scientists in Akademgorodok (Novosibirsk) under the leadership of academician Alexander L. Aseev, Chairman of the Siberian branch of RAS.
Alexander Aseev noted that the meeting continues consideration of topics discussed at the meeting held on July 16-17 in GCTC VIAM during the II All-Russian conference "Fundamental and applied research of corrosion and aging of materials under different conditions: problems and prospects".
Further Sergey Panin spoke about the history, development and tasks of GCTC VIAM as a unique Russian Center for climatic tests of materials and components of complex technical systems.
In turn, Oleg Startsev made a report on the problems of strength and resistance of materials and structural components of aviation equipment to climate impacts; also he spoke about the experience of this branch of VIAM in this area.
It should be noted that a number of proposals on the issues of cooperation between institutes of SB RAS and VIAM in the field of research of corrosion and aging of materials and structural components of aviation equipment under different conditions was put forward after a two-hour discussion.
G. V. Akimov Gelendzhik climatic testing center branch of VIAM (GCTC VIAM) is located on the Western shore of the Gelendzhik Bay. The center has all necessary equipment for conduction of full-scale studies to estimate the reliability of a wide range of high-tech products.
GCTC VIAM is the only Russian scientific center of climatic tests, which allows to carry out comprehensive testing of materials, structural components and final products in the marine environment and to develop protection systems against impact of corrosion, ageing and biodeterioration.
