The aim of the Workshop on Intelligent Fluid Power Transmission and Control (IFPAC) is to disseminate knowledge and promote further research in the fields of motion control, mechatronics, and dynamics of mechanical or fluid systems, with a particular emphasis on fluid power transmission systems. It is organised jointly by the University of Bath, UK, and Samara University, Russia.
For full details and the application form, please proceed to the download page.
The objectives include:
- Establish new links between participants and their institutions, both between UK and Russia and within both countries.
- Contribute to the personal and professional development of the participants
- Increase specialist expertise in this important area.
About 12 Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from Russia, and 12 from the UK are expected. There will be 3 senior academics from both countries. The fees for the ECRs is covered by the British Council's Researcher Links programme. Industrial participants can attend with their employers providing funding for all their costs.
The following are in the scope of the workshop:
- Intelligent control
- Smart fluids and materials
- Noise and vibration
- System design for efficiency
- Novel components
- Advances in Modeling and Simulation
- Fault analysis and diagnosis
- Digital and switched fluid power systems
- Drives, transmissions and actuators
- Specific applications, e.g. aircraft fuel control, gas turbine control, renewable energy
Who should attend
Early career researchers and academics with an interest in motion control, mechatronics or dynamics.
