To balance producibility, cost, and performance across our customer's machine fleet, we develop tools, methods, and designs that minimize weight and cost while maximizing performance and durability in our mechanical and electrical hardware. At GE Research, we are leading the field in design for additive manufacturing to create unprecedented performance while allowing for large degrees of freedom in design.
Structural Design and Optimization
Our team analyzes and develops weight and cost efficient designs that can meet or exceed system performance requirements. We marry modern design tools such as structural optimization with novel production techniques such as additive manufacturing to achieve breakthrough performance levels.
Stability, comfort and reliability of machinery relies on understanding and minimizing structural dynamics. Our team develops and validates solutions to mitigate vibration and noise across a wide range of products.
GE is known for its firsts in the composites field such as the first composite fan blade in the GE90 and the first ceramic matrix composite (CMC) part in the LEAP jet engine. Our team enables the efficient and economical use of composites through a thorough understanding from material mechanics to integration into large structures.
