Marek Czachor Faculty of Applied Physics & MathematicsGdańsk University of Technology (Politechnika Gdańska)Representing:Organizing & scientific committees of the 1st Smolensk Conference, 22 Oct 2012, Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences, WarszawaSmolensk research project of Gdańsk Univ. Technology & Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery in Gdańsk, Polish Acad. Sci. (Instytut Maszyn Przepływowych PAN)
2 Smolensk Conference Committee: 52 full or associate professors of physics, chemistry, mathematics or technical sciences fromUniversity of WarsawWarsaw University of TechnologyCardinal Stefan Wyszyński University, WarszawaNational Center for Nuclear Research, WarszawaGdańsk University of TechnologyUniversity of ŁódźŁódź University of TechnologyJagiellonian University, KrakówKraków University of TechnologyAGH University of Science and Technology, KrakówBiałystok University of TechnologyAdam Mickiewicz University, PoznańLublin University of TechnologyOpole University of TechnologyBuilding Research Institute, WarszawaInstitute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences, WarszawaInstitute of Organic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences, WarszawaInstitute of Low Temperature and Structure Research, Polish Academy of Sciences, WrocławInstitute of Fluid-Flow Machinery, Polish Academy of Sciences, GdańskInstitute of Mathematics, Polish Academy of Sciences , WarszawaInstitute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences, WarszawaUniversity of Technology and Life Sciences, Bydgoszcz
3 Goals of the 1st Smolensk Conference Create space for exchange of scientific results onCreate data basis for those who want to perform such researchLimiting factorsNo posibility of examining the wreckage and „black boxes”No access to reliable dataPart of evidence irreversibly lost due to improper treatmentNo funding of such research is available in PolandPositive elementsIn scientific community growing awareness of loopholes of the official investigationGrowing number of scientists who openly declare their will of undertaking the examination
5 17 m ? Radar altitude 120° Inconsistencies of the official reports (need access to original data)17 m ?Radar altitude120°
6 Issues that require laboratory examination (first of all, bring the wreckage to our labs)
7 Data source files are needed and not low-quality plots of the official reports Example: possible problem with engine 3 (not mentioned in the official reports)
8 The twin aircraft 102 is an important source of knowledge on technical details. Experience with servicing in Poland of former Soviet aircrafts shows that details of construction typically differ from the published technical documentation.Polish authorities try to sell 102 to Russia, which expresses interest in this transaction...
9 Funding?Standard paths of funding grants are here unavailable – the project is sensu stricto neither fundamental nor applied
10 Project proposal for National Center for Research & Development (NCBiR) Parametric modeling of the final few seconds of flight of TU-154M in Smolensk on 10 April 2010Gdańsk University of Technology (Politechnika Gdańska)5 departments from 4 facultiesInstitute of Fluid-Flow Machinery, Polish Academy of Sciences (IMP PAN)3 departments15 permanent group members + up to 20 persons to hireDuration 2 years
