Robust Low Cost Combustion (SILOET II Project 7)
The objective of this Rolls-Royce led project was to develop gas turbine technologies to improve the prediction of component lives, develop new high temperature alloys for combustor components, deliver validated cooling designs to increase
cooling efficiency, and reduce both manufacture and life cycle cost. The project intended to develop a suite of tools to optimise cooling design at a low technology readiness level, enhance Lean Burn technology maturity towards exploitation in
engine products, and improve the design of the interface between the combustor and turbine modules to reduce
engine fuel consumption.
