LEAP 71 RP/CEM
A Computational Engineering Model
for Space Propulsion
RP/CEM is a robust Computational Engineering Model for rocket propulsion systems under active development by LEAP 71.
The Computational Engineering Model (CEM) produces a variety of spacecraft components and integrated systems, including injector heads, traditional bell-nozzle type combustion chambers, as well as advanced engines such as aerospike.
RP/CEM uses analytical formulae, heuristics, and condensed aerospace engineering knowledge, all encoded in a coherent algorithmic framework.
RP/CEM allows engineers to go from abstract input specifications such as propellant types, desired thrust, chamber pressure, to a manufacturable engine geometry in minutes. Through a wide set of parameters, designs can be iterated on, physical simulation results fed back, as well as actual testing data, to quickly converge on a validated engine prototype.
LEAP 71 is working with partners on theoretical and physical validation of the designs that are generated by our algorithms. We work with the world’s leading Additive Manufacturing companies to ensure manufacturability.
