Cranfield University forge collaboration with Romax Technology

Cranfield University and Romax Technology have forged a collaboration to support an aerospace PhD project investigating an open rotor and pitch control mechanism. Within this partnership agreement, alongside licences of their flagship software product, Romax will also provide technical support for both software usage and practical application for the duration of the project. This will include workshop activity to specifically focus on developing deeper understanding where necessary.

Romax are very excited to be involved in this project, and to be adding Cranfield University to their academic partner programme. Romax’s Partnership Management Specialist, Sam Wade, comments:  “Our academic programme aims to collaborate with universities from all around the world and has more than 50 partners. We provide students with state-of-the-art software, access to world-leading experts, and the most up-to-date methods and tools, in order to support world-leading research and help to develop excellence in the next generation of engineers. We are thrilled to invite Cranfield University to join our academic programme and for the opportunity to provide support for some very exciting research within the aerospace industry.”

Dr. Bobby Sethi, Leader of Cranfield University’s “Technoconomic Environmental Risk Assessment (TERA)” for Civil Aviation comments: “We believe joining Romax’s partner programme will be very beneficial for us. Our collaboration with Romax will enable our PhD students to use the latest simulation tools on their research project. Knowing that the software is backed up by experts with experience from a range of projects within the aerospace sector, who can provide technical support and training where necessary, is very reassuring.”     

The project will use Romax’s flagship product, RomaxDESIGNER, a complete simulation platform for end-to-end integrated whole system design and analysis. With a strong client base in the automotive sector, RomaxDESIGNER is being used more and more by the aerospace industry, to investigate novel design concepts and make optimisations regarding noise and efficiency.
