Rolls-Royce, a world-leading provider of power systems and services for use on land, at sea and in the air, operates in four global markets - civil aerospace, defense aerospace, marine and energy. We continue to invest in core technologies, products, people and capabilities with the objective of broadening and strengthening the product portfolio, improving efficiency and enhancing the environmental performance of its products.

The Component Dynamics group is responsible for the analysis and test of a varied list of gas turbine engine components including blades, vanes, seals, brackets, combustion liners, tubes, etc. Because it is a centralized service group within the engineering organization the work spans the entire product line and involves all engine models. The “cradle-to-grave” approach of the group allows the engineer the unique opportunity to perform the analysis on a component and then later test the component and use the results to validate their original model.
