International Conference “Conjugate Problems of Mechanics and Ecology”
4-9 July 2000, Tomsk
The conference is organized by Tomsk State University, the Centre on Reactive Media Mechanics and Ecology, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, the Novosibirsk State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, the Siberian Branch of the Council on Combustion of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Tomsk Society of Mechanics-scientists and Thermophysicists. The conference will elaborate on the following topics:
Natural and technogenic catastrophes
Understanding of accidental explosions in nature and industry
Predicting motion and distribution of dangerous celestial natural and man-made dangerous objects
The problem of celestial bodies entering the dense layers of the atmosphere and the methods of changing a flight trajectory
Mechanisms of thermochemical destruction of celestial bodies in the atmosphere of the planets and the Earth
Catastrophic floods and ecology of existing water-development works
Principles, methods and technical facilities of the ecological monitoring of natural complexes and geotechnical systems
Physico-chemical foundations and control methods of contaminating media and their regeneration
Forest fires: initiation, spread and ecological impacts
Methodology of risk-analysis of new technologies for improving the ecological production safety
The physical and mechanical properties of aerosols and dispersed fluids
Computer programmes and methods for predicting ecological impacts of catastrophes
Higher ecological education and social monitoring
Ecological and social aspects of the collision catastrophe
The working languages of the conference are Russian and English. The Conference program is as follows:
“Round table” discussions of different aspects of the conference
Sale-exhibition of computer programs and methods
Sponsors are invited for mutual cooperation and participation in the conference. The program will include the names of the participants and organizations that will support the conference.
