Kirill Rozhdestvensky (St. Petersburg State Marine Technical University)  

Vice President of Saint-Petersburg State Marine Technical University  



He is the author of the book Aerodynamics  of a Lifting System in Extreme Ground Effect (2000). This book describes  a mathematical model of flow past a lifting system performing steady  and unsteady motion in close proximity to the underlying solid surface  (ground). The author consid-ers  various approximations based on the general method of matched  asymptotic expansions applied to lifting flows. Particular importance is  attached to the case of extreme ground effects describing very small  relative ground clearances. Practitioners involved in the design of wing-in-ground  effect vehicles will find in this book all the relevant formulae and  calculated data for the prediction of aerodynamic characteristics in  this important limiting case. More generally, this book is suitable for  graduate students, researchers and engineers working or lecturing in the  area of theoretical aerodynamics.  

In 9.03.2013, he attended  The Society for Underwater Technology Technical Conference(SUTTC2013)  and wrote Study of Submersion of a Body Equipped with Buoyancy Engine  with Account of Density Profile and Hull Compression. This paper  contains an analysis of submersion of a body, equipped with buoyancy  engine, based on a simplified mathematical model, accounting for  depthwise density profile and hull compression.
