    R&D Dynamics

    R&D Dynamics is a Gold Sponsor

    R&D Dynamics was founded in 1990. The company’s founder Dr. Giri Agrawal pioneered the design and development of high speed rotating machines supported on foil air/gas bearings for air cycle machines in the 70’s and 80’s while working at Honeywell and Hamilton Sundstrand. As Chief Project Engineer at Hamilton Sundstrand, he received the “George Mead Medal”, the highest technical award from the parent company United Technologies Corporation. He was also cited as the “Father” of the Hamilton Sundstrand Air Bearing Program. The foil bearing designs developed by Dr. Agrawal are used even today for air cycle machines of all modern civil and military aircraft.

    Dr. Agrawal’s vision for the new company was to extend foil bearing technology to rotating machines other than air cycle machines, and that is the mission of R&D Dynamics Corporation.

    R&D Dynamics is pursuing all three classes of turbomachinery for design, development and manufacturing. In addition to developing and manufacturing turbomachinery R&D Dynamics invests heavily in research and development for advancing its core technologies. R&D Dynamics holds an extensive portfolio of patents and proprietary processes pertaining to foil bearings and turbomachines.
