Petersburg Scientists Engineered

Scientists of the St. Petersburg State University have developed controllable mechanisms for aircraft wings.

      The so-called "feathers" created by them make it possible to adjust to the wind and compensate for turbulence.

      Turbulence is a phenomenon in which spontaneous waves appear in the air current, causing the aircraft’s "diving", shaking in the cabin, and sometimes even air accidents.

      “We have developed “feathers” for aircraft wings – these are controlled mechanisms with pressure sensors that can be raised and rotated with an electric motor and thus compensate for turbulence. To control the “feathers” system, a central computer is not required, since the devices are connected into a network and adjust to each other themselves”, - Professor Oleg Granichin of St. Petersburg State University explained.
