High Temperature Turbine Technology and Demonstration (SILOET 2 P8)

The High Temperature and Turbine Technology Development and Demonstration project was a collaborative research and technology project led by Rolls-Royce, in collaboration with Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Swansea. The ATI-supported project aimed to develop turbine technologies for future civil aerospace gas turbine engines, with potential wider benefits of exploitation in gas turbines for other market sectors. New technologies will help reduce fuel consumption and resultant CO2 emissions; and improve component life and life predictions. Fundamental and applied research will be pulled through to representative engine components for tests in rigs and full system testing in a high temperature demonstrator engine.
