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 and structural dynamics experimental facilities can hold a variety of size test articles from up to 30 inches in diameter in the Compressor Spin Pit, to 60 inches in diameter in the Large Spin Pit to 168 inches in diameter in the Large Fan Spin Tank.
In addition, the lab makes use of computational fluid dynamics codes such as FINE/Turbo, FINE/OPEN, STAR-CD, TURBO, the finite element tools ANSYS, LS-DYNA, and many other proprietary LabView and Matlab tools.
