In 2021, Romar Engineering formally partnered with RMIT to collaborate on a new project: Multi-objective optimisation of additively manufactured components subject to multiphysics loading.
Direct energy deposition (DED) and Laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) additive manufacturing processes can enable unprecedented levels of part design optimisation by eliminating constraints imposed by traditional manufacturing techniques.
Our collaboration will focus on better solutions to challenging multi-disciplinary design problems involving thermal, fluid, and structural loading, present in high-value components such as rocket engine components, advanced heat exchangers, high temperature valves and conformally cooled tooling.
RMIT University is a globally-respected university of technology, design and enterprise.
RMIT’s researchers collaborate with researchers from university, government and industry, nationally and internationally to develop innovative real-world solutions to challenges including cutting-edge manufacturing solutions.
The result is exceptional research outcomes that help reshape our community.
