- /ˈaftəkulɪŋ/ (say 'ahftuhkoohling)
part of the shutdown procedure of some turbo-charged engines, in which the engine is allowed to idle for a stipulated time before switching off, allowing the turbine spindle to slow from its normal high speed to idle speed and the turbine temperatures to stabilise, thus avoiding overheating of the bearing lubricant.
