Personal profile


Dr. Rahmati’s research interest lies in the field of turbomachinery for both conventional and renewable power and propulsion. Dr. Rahmati earned a PhD from UCL for developing innovative new viscous inverse methods for turbomachinery blade design. These methods enable the direct and efficient computation of turbomachinery blade geometry instead of time-consuming optimization or trial-and-error approaches, making them highly suitable for industrial applications.  He has conducted research in the field of wet renewable energy and played a key role in developing WRASPA, a novel wave energy converter model that harnesses the power of sea waves to generate electricity. Dr. Rahmati played a crucial role in designing and conducting experimental studies of the device at three various wave tanks at Manchester University, Edinburgh University, and Lancaster University. His research at the Rolls-Royce Centre at Oxford University led to the development of a pioneering efficient computational tool, which enables to carry out the aeroelasticity analysis in multi-stage turbomachines with no ambiguity. This new tool is used in industry to improve the aeroelastic performance of compressors and turbine blades used in gas turbines and wind turbine blades. The originality and impact of Dr Rahmati’s research have been acknowledged by several funding bodies, including EPSRC, which awarded grants for pioneering studies on the mechanism of instabilities in modern `high-lift’ Low-Pressure turbines used in aero-engines of modern passenger aircraft as well as large wind turbine blades.
