This study proposes the validation of a novel electro-hydrodynamic (EHD) technology to intensify and control two-phase heat transfer in microgravity. Flight tests will advance the EHD technology maturity from Proof of Concept (TRL 3-4) to Demonstration in Microgravity (TRL 6-7). The proposed work focuses on testing the expected ability of the EHD technology to intensify and control heat and mass transfer in boiling dielectric fluids in microgravity.More »
