Fundamental and applied problems of mechanics- 2017


24–27 October 2017



(17.01.1847-17.03.1921 )


   Nikolay Egorovich Zhukovsky is the great Russian scientist, founder of applied aerodynamics, "father of the Russian aviation", creator of TsAGI, the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, founder of Theoretical Mechanics Department, Professor of the Imperial Moscow Technical School and Moscow University.


   Professor N.E. Zhukovsky's scientific work initiated a new era in development of mechanical science and technology. N.E. Zhukovsky is not only responsible for a large number of important discoveries in mechanics, but he is also a scientist who dramatically changed the role of science in engineering. One of his biggest achievements is that he was able to combine the most subtle theoretical research with experience and direct all the power of these methods to study physical and technical phenomena, to solve major engineering problems. N.E. Zhukovsky realized and showed that mechanics can develop further, only being constantly enriched by experimental data, as it was in the days of Galileo, and in such a combination it will become an instrument of unprecedented strength for studying the phenomena of nature, for the advance of technology.

   All future and present day scientists, engineers, and researchers should know Nikolay Yegorovich Zhukovsky's prophetic words, which he said in 1898 at the Tenth Congress of the Russian Naturalists: "A man ... will fly, not leaning on the strength of his muscles, but on strength of their reason".


The Department of Theoretical Mechanics, FN-3, one of the oldest departments of Bauman Moscow State Technical University was founded by Nikolay Egorovich Zhukovsky in 1878.

The development  of the course of theoretical mechanics in Russia is  inseparably associated with the name of this great Russian scientist, who was the head of the department for forty-three years (1878-1921). According to the memoirs of the honorary academician, the first engineer of Russia V.G. Shukhov, "... before N.E. Zhukovsky mechanics was taught in a confusing and difficult for students way. Teaching on the basis of  Lagrange approach was available only to students with thorough mathematical background. Nikolay Egorovich introduced a simpler geometric form of mechanics interpretation, which was well understood by future engineers".  

N.E. Zhukovsky laid the foundations of a classical approach to teaching theoretical mechanics in technical universities. At the same time, the analytical approach was not ruled out, but was supplemented with visible geometric images while maintaining rigorous proof of the main provisions of theoretical mechanics.

It is with theoretical mechanics, as a fundamental general engineering discipline, that students begin to get acquainted with their future engineering studies. The construction of mathematical models of mechanisms and mechanical systems, including allocation and compilation of computational schemes, application of information obtained by describing the mechanical motion, carrying out calculations and the ability to analyze results, are the main competencies that students must master at the end of the course in theoretical mechanics.

Considering the important role and achievements of Theoretical Mechanics Department in training highly qualified specialists, the Academic Council of Bauman University in April 2012 unanimously awarded the Department the name of its founder - Professor Nikolay Egorovich Zhukovsky.

N.E. Zhukovsky's Memorial house


   N.E. Zhukovsky's Memorial house in Orekhovo Village is a rare type of a historical monument not only of Vladimir Region, but also of Russia's central regions. Orekhovo is the residence of the founder of aeronautics and his family, as well as a remarkable manor of the nobility with more than 200 years of history. The names of some great landowners from Orekhovo have been preserved here, the landscape and manor ensemble are practically not disturbed by time. The charming beauty of nature singles out Orekhovo among the few Russian estates of the 18th and 19th centuries, which have survived up to this day.



   The manor in the village Orekhovo Vladimir uezd (disctrict) was laid back in the late 17th century. Initially, it belonged to the leader of the nobility, second major, court counselor Nikolay Mikhaylovich Vsevolozhsky. The village was granted to his ancestors during the reign of Ivan the Terrible. As a patrimonial estate, it was assigned to N.M. Vsevolozhsky by the Empress Catherine the Great.

The first owners created a magnificent ensemble in Orekhovo - one of the most interesting on the Vladimir land. The wooden plastered manor house, distinguished by its noble simplicity, the wings, greenhouses, stables, а formal linden park, a driveway birch alley - all this masterfully matches the surrounding nature, creating an amazingly harmonious ensemble.

In 1839 the estate was inherited by the Russian nobleman N.A. Lyapunov. In January of the same year, he pledged the house for 26 years (it was the Vladimir order of public assistance), it cost him 15 thousand rubles in silver. Two years later, in 1841, the estate was bought by the real state councilor Egor Ivanovich Zhukovsky and his wife Anna Nikolaevna Stechkina. It was here in Orekhovo on January 17, 1847 where the genius of the world science was born, the "father of Russian aviation", the founder of practical, theoretical and experimental aerodynamics Nikolay Zhukovsky.


Nikolay Egorovich's whole life was related to this modest piece of our Motherland. He used to come here as a schoolboy, then as a student of Physics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow University; he spent his holiday here, while teaching at Moscow Higher Technical School and Moscow State University. It was in Orekhovo where Nikolay Egorovich did much of his scientific work.

In 1937, according to the resolution of the Council of People's Commissars, in the scientist's homeland the ensemble museum was opened. His first director was Nicholay Egorovich's niece - Vera Alexandrovna Zhukovskaya. Currently, 11 rooms hold the exposition of the museum, 7 of which recreate the memorial complex, in 4 rooms there is "The Scientist's Scientific Heritage", in the mezzanine the interior of the manorial room is recreated. The Orekhovo estate, fortunately, has fully survived up to our time. The garden is located in the same place as it was at the time of the first owners, the park has perfectly preserved the old layout, all its avenues can be traced, in their shade you can see the restored "ancient" arbors.

The estate in Orekhovo plays an important cultural and historical role. It gives a fairly complete idea of a certain period of society, stores architectural monuments and collections, remarkable for their memorial character. This manor is distinguished because of the man who played an outstanding role in scientific, social and cultural life of our country. N.E. Zhukovsky's scientific heritage, the practical implementation of his ideas in national aerospace technology made Russia a leading aerospace power. Today, his ideas are widely used in rocket and space technology at creating reusable space transportation systems, as well as designing promising reusable manned spacecraft, reusable rocket boosters and aerospace systems. All this testifies to the scientific perspicacity of Nikolay Egorovich, the importance of his discoveries, their significance for the development of science and technology, and the preservation of Russia's status as a leading space and aviation power.



English and Russian languages are the working languages at the conference. The Organising Committee can arrange interpretation for foreign participants during official parts of the Meeting and excursions.

The Organizing Committee plans to organize an excursion about the centre of Moscow and to BMSTU Museum. Participants may also inform the Committee about other places of interest, which they desire to visit.
