The work of the Oxford Thermofluids Institute has consistently been of high impact. Through our work with engineering technology industries, we have delivered a step change in the understanding and predictability of next generation cooling systems to enable the UK to establish a global lead in jet engine and hypersonic vehicle cooling technology.
Our pathways to impact include research impact, which has shaped the design of the Rolls Royce Trent 1000 and reduced engine development times. Our public engagement activities include events to promote research to the public and industry, social media activities and participation in science festivals. Finally, our staff members participate in outreach activities to promote women in Engineering and STEM placements for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
