Calspan is a licensed test cell provider of engine test facilities and systems to GE, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, and CFMI.


Aerodynamic Expertise

Under the guidance of a renowned thought leader, the Calspan Aero/Thermal/Acoustics team leverages computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software and a host of proprietary analytical tools to accurately predict the aerodynamic, thermal and acoustic performance of test cells prior to facility construction.

These analytical tools and advanced CFD software offer a proven means of resolving complex test cell air-flow physics, optimizing designs for test cell renovation, reducing noise — and even increasing the engine testing capacity of existing facilities.

Applying equations from more than 200 performance parameters, our test cell airflow model helps determine test cell pumping efficiency, flow velocities and temperatures at various locations in the test cell flow stream.
