Research Topics

  • generation of the low-temperature plasma, its diagnostics and application to the modeling aerodynamic heating;
  • experimental studies of heat transfer in sub- and supersonic plasma flows;
  • thermochemical testing of thermal protection materials and TPS elements in high-enthalpy gas flows;
  • numerical simulation of induction plasma flows and heat transfer;
  • determination of catalytic properties of the surface of tested material with respect to atomic recombination;
  • self-organization phenomena in gas-discharges;
  • study of effect of corona discharge from pointed objects on lightning during a thunderstorm for purposes of lightning protection;
  • investigation of streamer-leader processes in laboratory, in lightning, and in the upper atmosphere ("blue jets" and "red sprites");
  • studies the anisotropy of materials and surrounding space.
