Abstract A national Centre of Excellence in Combustion Aerodynamics will be established at Loughborough University. Within the Centre University researchers will work together with industrial engineers from partners such as Rolls-Royce to develop the next generation of future, low emission, aerospace gas turbine combustion systems. Research undertaken within the Centre will help develop step changes in technology that will be transferred into commercial combustion systems for use in leaner and greener aircraft engines that power both civil and military aircraft. The Centre will also be instrumental in the training of future scientists and engineers capable of developing and delivering this technology. The development will help support the UK and enable it to successfully compete within the future aerospace market and thereby benefit the UK economy.
