Mechanics & Design
The GE Research team utilizes unique skills and domain expertise in durability, mechanical systems, mechanical synthesis, probabilistic design and structural mechanics to bring unique solutions to life for our customers.
Our teams combine advanced analytical methods, using commercial and in-house tools, with sub-scale and full-scale experimental capabilities for basic phenomenon such as fatigue, wear or motion control through full scale validation of airfoils, bearings, gears and seals. GE Research also develops tools and methods for optimizing the design and manufacturing of novel systems.
