Turbo-machinery Flow and Turbulence (TuFT)

Short Title: TuFT
Project Number: 101369
Project Cost: £4.26m
End Date: March 31, 2016
Time Horizon: Secure
Lead Partner: Rolls-Royce PLC
Attributes: Fuel Efficiency
ATI Value Stream: Propulsion of the Future

Gas turbine technology is developing rapidly in the drive to reduce fuel burn and environmental impact. The accurate modelling and understanding of turbo-machinery flow is a fundamental requirement for the design of high performance, low emission turbo machines. It is also a key enabler to meeting the requirements of future engines, where changes in architecture will drive towards larger, lower pressure ratio fans and smaller higher pressure ratio core components at a given thrust size.

The proposal will help to accelerate progress in a number of key high potential aerodynamic technologies, through a programme of strong industry/academic collaboration.
