Rolls-Royce, CAS to develop technology for new materials

  • 09-Feb-2009 05:46 EST
Rolls-Royce signed a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) to undertake a joint research project, the focus of which is on developing manufacturing techniques and utilizing new materials for use in low-pressure turbine blades for the group’s gas turbine engines. The MOU will enable further cooperation between Rolls-Royce and the Institute of Metals Research (IMR) at CAS on advancing techniques in titanium aluminide casting technology. This joint research project combines Rolls-Royce expertise in advanced engine technologies with IMR’s specialist skills in advanced and alternative material technologies.
