Dr. Hasani Azamar Aguirre holds the title of Lecturer in Aero Engine Aerodynamics and Performance within the Centre for Propulsion and Thermal Power Engineering in the School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing at Cranfield University.
Prior to joining the faculty at Cranfield University, Dr. Azamar Aguirre worked as a stress and low-cycle fatigue prediction analyst for aircraft engine rotating parts at General Electric (GE) Aviation from 2007 to 2012. In this capacity, he received in 2010 the best global stress analysis award as the highest distinction given within GE Aviation within this field. He is a certified Six Sigma Green Belt and ISO 9001:2008 internal auditor.
Dr Hasani Azamar Aguirre was
awarded with the Rolls-Royce UTC Annual Review 2021’s Best Speaker Award for
his presentation on Engine Sub-idle Performance Research. Since 2018, Dr Azamar Aguirre has led the sub-idle
performance research programme under the EU CleanSky 2 PROTEUS project in collaboration with Rolls-Royce.
Derived from this 1.1M€ activity, Hasani presented the development and
integration of methods to predict component and whole-engine sub-idle
performance, capitalizing in this way the ability of the Centre to simulate
steady-state windmill and transient relight for the next generation of VHBR
turbofan engines such as the R-R UltraFan™. For additional reference, please
Dr. Azamar Aguirre holds a BSc with honours in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering from the Monterrey Superior Institute of Technology Studies (ITESM), specializing in aeronautics and pilot training at the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI). He completed his MSc with distinction honours in Aerospace Engineering from Queen Mary University of London. In 2018, he received his PhD Degree in Aerospace Propulsion Aerodynamics from Cranfield University on the topic of transonic flow simulation for axial-flow compressors to analytically predict the shock-wave structure, shock losses and choking using streamline curvature methods.
Dr. Azamar Aguirre is affiliated with the Gas Turbine Engineering Group and the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC).
Current activities include the investigation of installation effects of VHBR turbofan engines on the nacelle aeroloads under the FANTASIA project in collaboration with Rolls-Royce. Additionally, he participates in the development of a numerical throughflow simulation tool for axial-flow compressors in cooperation with the Hellenic Air Force Academy. Dr. Azamar Aguirre supports the delivery of the "Compressor Design" module for the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses for gas turbines. In this academic practice, he supervises PhD and MSc Thermal Power and Propulsion students under the Rolls-Royce UTC, MSc Astronautics and Space Engineering under the recently created CASPI (https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/centres/centre-for-propulsion-and-thermal-power-engineering/cranfield-air-and-space-propulsion-institute), and international internship aerospace projects.
His current research interests include: aerospace propulsion, aerodynamics, gas turbine performance, numerical modelling (FEM and CFD for turbomachinery), transonic axial-flow compressors and Schlieren visualization for supersonic flow.
