Specific Challenge:

Bearings currently proposed for future UltraFan® engine concepts require oil for lubrication and cooling, adding considerable weight and complexity to the engine design. Research is proposed to exploit the superior hardness and thermal conductivity of synthetic diamond materials in the manufacture of bearings that could be air rather than oil lubricated. This proposal will address early TRL challenges associated with diamond bearing design, manufacture, cooling and installation. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
