ROTUNDA1*Please check our Spring 2014 ROMAC Newsletter*

The Rotating Machinery and Controls (ROMAC) Industrial Program supports cooperative research efforts conducted by faculty, staff, and students in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department and the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Virginia. The ROMAC Industrial Program emphasizes theoretical and experimental research in general areas of rotordynamics, turbomachinery, structural dynamics, magnetic bearings, the application of automatic controls to the dynamics of rotating machinery, internal incompressible flows, the coupling of internal flows to the dynamics of rotating machinery, fluid film bearings, and seals. The interaction between industry and university professionals through the medium of ROMAC provides the university researchers with an understanding of practical industrial problems with rotating machinery while the industrial participants obtain very timely research results.
