Goals of the 1st Smolensk Conference
• Create space for exchange of scientific results on 10.04.2010
• Create data basis for those who want to perform such research
Limiting factors
• No posibility of examining the wreckage and „black boxes”
• No access to reliable data
• Part of evidence irreversibly lost due to improper treatment
• No funding of such research is available in Poland
Positive elements
• In scientific community growing awareness of loopholes of the official
investigation
• Growing number of scientists who openly declare their will of undertaking the
examination
Examples of the difficulties we have...
Inconsistencies of the official reports
(need access to original data)
17 m ?
Radar altitude
120°
Issues that require laboratory examination
(first of all, bring the wreckage to our labs)
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)
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...
Funding?
Standard paths of funding grants are here
unavailable – the project is sensu stricto
neither fundamental nor applied
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 2010
Gdańsk University of Technology (Politechnika Gdańska)
5 departments from 4 faculties
Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery, Polish Academy of Sciences (IMP PAN)
3 departments
15 permanent group members + up to 20 persons to hire
Duration 2 years
Examples of previous activities of the Gdańsk group
