Advancements in Turbine Technology

In this video, Prof. Sir Colin Humphreys describes the operation of Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre and how new materials developed in this department are helping to improve turbine technology in Rolls-Royce engines. The department has worked on turbine blades and compressor blades, which are being used in Rolls-Royce engines, and also used electron microscopy to find the atomic structure of these materials.

The Rolls-Royce department is also working to find new materials that remain strong at high temperatures and can withstand bird strikes while operating at the highest temperatures. These types of materials can make planes more fuel-efficient and reduce carbon emissions.
