The Thermosciences organization invents breakthrough aerodynamic, thermal management and combustion solutions for improved performance, reliability, cost, and environmental impact of a wide range of industrial products. The team has enabled low cost emissions solutions in large reciprocating diesel engines, eliminated some combustion dynamics issues in gas turbines, developed technologies for improved stall margin, turbine aero efficiency and reduced noise signature and delivered novel heat exchange and energy management solutions for healthcare and aviation products. With the use of state-of-the-art data analytics and digital solutions, we have delivered innovation that increases customer value and enables competitive growth in core and disruptive markets.
Our toolkit includes the expertise of over 100 research engineers (most of whom have PhD’s) that collectively represent over 1,000 years of thermal, aerodynamic and combustion research and development experience. Layered on top of this is a high-performance compute facility that includes a High Performance Computing cluster along with the availability of in-house high-fidelity modeling tools that have been honed and validated with product data over decades. Finally, our testing facilities are uniquely designed to enable experimental investigations that help explain those physical phenomena and attributes that are critical to maximizing product performance and maximizing customer value.
