The  £3.6 Million Innovate UK and Rolls Royce funded COAST project is led by Rolls Royce and brings together experts from the Universities of Oxford, Nottingham Sheffield and Bladon Jets Ltd (UK).

The project focuses on maturing the readiness level of a range of engine technologies including advanced seals for gas turbine applications, cabin blower/modelling of oil flows and heat transfer in gas turbines bearing chambers.

The project studies the development of designs suitable for engine demonstrator testing with the aid of architecture concept studies, rig testing and modelling.
