the National Aerospace University "KhAI"
into European Research Area


WS relevant to Research Topic A

Apr 27, 2012
KhAI`s researchers Mr. Pavel Gagauz and Mr. Fedor Gagauz hold the Workshop devoted to composite materials in Brno on 17-18 April 2012.

17-18 April 2012 the first Worshop on Research Topic A: Composite Materials was held in Institute of Aerospace Engeeniring, Technical Univarsity of Brno by two KhAI's researcher, associate professors of Aerospace Material Science Department Mr. Pavel Gagauz and Mr. Fedir Gagauz.


On the first day  of WS Mr. Pavlo Gagauz presented the analytical approaches to the composite panel design used in the scientific researches and for students training in the National aerospace University KhAI. This presentation concentrated on two problems:

  • Presentation of KhAI-developed design technique for the composite lay-up optimization under constraints on strength, stability, deflection and technology. In this part also were described the basic fundamental results of task solution in the area of composite panel lay-up optimization.
  • Presentation of general approaches and strategies for the composite and sandwich panel design.


18 April 2012 Mr. Fedir Gagauz delivered a lecture devoted to the general methodology for the composite rods design. This presentation concentrated on three problems:

  • Presentation of analytical approaches to the design of composite rods with circular and prismatic cross-sections under strength and stability constraints.
  • General description of general used types of composite rods joining and rod-ends.
  • Presentation of analytical approaches to the stress-strain analysis of composite tubular rod considering the edge effect.
