The GTL has a wide array of unique experimental facilities complemented by extensive computational tools. Aerodynamic and heat transfer experimental facilities range from the large Turbine Test Facility, capable of matching design-corrected turbine operating conditions, down to the Small Calibration Facility. Aeromechanics work in the Compressor Spin Pit and Fan Spin pit provide another track of research. In addition, the lab makes use of computational fluid dynamics codes such as FINE/Turbo, FINE/OPEN, STAR-CD, TURBO, the finite element tool ANSYS, and many other proprietary LabView and Matlab tools.
