We are working with Rolls-Royce to model component design in their world-renowned jet engines more quickly and cost-effectively.
With growing global air traffic set to require 35,000 new
aircraft by 2030, the key to sustaining success in the highly
competitive aerospace sector is often dependant on the speed at which
companies can investigate and deploy new innovations.
When exploring new engine design innovations, Rolls-Royce uses
software called PRECISE to carry out computer simulations. The company
wanted the software to run faster so that the simulations could be
completed significantly more quickly, enabling them to explore more
design options in a shorter space of time.
Vendel Szeremi, Computational Scientist at the Hartree Centre,
said: “Working closely with Rolls-Royce, we provided recommendations on
how the company could remove bottlenecks in performance, and the
improvements resulted in a 20% increase in running speed for the key
As part of this work, we also generated a roadmap showing how the
software could be scaled to run bigger models – and help the company’s
aero-engines become even more efficient, cleaner and greener in the
