Logo of National Aerospace University “Kharkiv Aviation Institute”

The National Aerospace University “KhAI” is today a globally recognized educational and research center.

Distinctive competencies

Aerodynamics: KhAI has developed advanced methods for the determination of aerodynamic forces on subsonic, transonic and supersonic speeds and special software for processing experimental results real-time processing. Supersonic wind tunnel T-6 is equipped with automated systems for control and registration of important flow parameters that permit an increase in the precision and reliability of the system, and to decrease power resources expenses. KhAI aerodynamic complex has the status of National Heritage of Ukraine.

Unmanned aerial vehicles:

  • research and experimental design of a whole complex of remotely operated aircraft for civil applications
  • study of airplane critical flight modes on its unmanned free flying dynamically similar models

CAD/CAM/CAE design: The Design Center is equipped with powerful graphic stations and up-to-date software (UNIGRAFIX, EUCLID, ANSYS, NASTRAN, COSMOS, SOLID WORKS, LS DYNA etc.) for the whole range of work from aircraft master-geomentry development up to structure and element design and calculation.

Structural strength: Static and repeated static certification tests of light aircrafts and their structures, FEM simulation and analysis of structures, lifetime prediction on the basis of original methods, determination of static, fatigue and cyclic deformation characteristics of materials, development of technologies for aviation machinery repair. The Strength Lab is certified: Aviation Regulations of Ukraine, part 23, sections C and D. Airworthiness Specifications JAR-VLA, sections C and D.

Aircraft and spacecraft propulsion systems:

  • analysis of flows in gas turbine engine and defining its operation characteristics, multistage axial compressors expert assessment on the basis of a set of two-dimensional analysis methods
  • gas turbine engines real-time diagnostics and service life monitoring: the developed system allows temperature monitoring and the stress of parts and estimates service life
  • development of new generation of high-effective plasma thrusters for micro satellites
  • development of a new generation of high-performance electric jet engines for space aircraft orientation and satellite orbit correction
  • self-heated plasma cathodes for plasma thrusters, etc. (current range from 0.5 to 150A)

Material science: gas-thermal, ion-plasma, gas-detonation, and metal-nanodiamond coatings for thermal, chemical, corrosion and wear protection. The advantages of KhAI automatic complex for gas-detonation include: (a) computer systems for process control and coating properties prediction (b) obtaining coatings with pre-set properties (c) wide range of materials used.

Nanoscience: KhAI is deeply involved in advanced research in different areas, including:

  • Low-cost and highly productive technologies and equipment for metal, ceramic, polymer (ZrO2, Y2O3, TiO2, Al2O3, WC, TiC, Fe2O3, Cu, Ni, Co, etc.) nanoparticle production
  • Technologies and equipment for multilayer nano-scaled coatings (heat-resistant, anticorrosive, antierosive, etc.) for gas-turbine engine blades
  • Wear-resistant paintwork material with nanoparticles for aeronautic and engineering applications
  • Wear-resistant nano-modified electroplating coating
  • Enhancement of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) mechanical properties with Nano-diamonds
  • Nano-modified carbon fiber plastic for composite structures lightning protection.
  • Nano-modified lubricants with enhanced tribological properties

Composite structures: Advanced algorithm for high-strength composite structures; innovative composite-to-metal and composite-to-composite heavy-loaded joints; composite parts manufacturing process modeling and optimization; manufacturing tool design; composite parts repair processes modeling.

Aerospace thermal engineering: Development of advanced two-phase thermal- control system for the next generation of communication satellites that provides a 30% thermal control system mass reduction and 10 times lower power consumption for thermal control accuracy ± 0.5 °C.

Spacecraft control system: Development of an active fault-tolerance FPGAbased self-remedial control system for satellites.

Power supply: Development of accumulators accelerated life tests technology, based on intensification of the degradation processes.

I'm not surе exactly ԝhy but this blog is
loaԁing extremely slow for me. Is anyone else
haѵing this issue or is it a pгoblem on my end? I'll check back lɑter and see if
the problem still exists.
