Contact Dr Soheil Jafari

Areas of expertise

  • Gas Turbines & Propulsion

Background

Dr Jafari joint the Centre for propulsion engineering at Cranfield University in December 2017 to focus on ultra high bypass ratio (UHBR) turbofan engines performance and optimization.

Before joining Cranfield, he was working with the Dynamic, Control, and Vehicle Research (DCVR) Group at the University of Sussex, where he spent three years working on an industry-linked project with Ford, Ricardo, and Denso. The project involved the design, modelling, control, and optimisation of advanced thermal management systems for internal combustion engines.

Prior to that, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Sharif University of Technology from 2013 to 2015. Alongside his teaching activities his research focused on the control and multidisciplinary design optimisation of gas turbine engines. Soheil gained his PhD at the Iran University of Science and Technology in 2011. His work resulted in the first national electronic control unit (ECU) for aeroengines in Iran.

Current activities

Dr Jafari's current research is focused on thermal management systems for ultra high bypass ratio (UHBR) turbofan engines as well as control engineering and optimization algorithms in aerospace engineering problems.
