Years devoted to development of aerodynamics in Siberia (to the 100th Anniversary of V.V. Struminskii)

Vladimir V. Struminskii devoted the period from 1966 to 1971 to the development of aerodynamics in Siberia. It was a period of construction of aerodynamic facilities of the institute, which later formed the basis for the high level of ITAM researches and recognition of ITAM results by both domestic and foreign aerodynamic centers and universities. The undoubted credit should be given to V.V. Struminskii for creating a team of researchers-aerodynamicists within several years when he was the ITAM Director. It was in those years that the unique experimental basis in the Academy of Sciences of the USSR was developed and constructed; these facilities provided a possibility of development of basic research in aerogasdynamics. Many pioneering and fundamental results on stability and transition to turbulence, separated flows, aerodynamic interference, and rarefied gas dynamics were obtained in these wind tunnels.
