Project Description

Zero-g Condensation Droplets and Flow in Phase-Change Loops
Proposed is a sub-orbital flight test focused on verifying predictive technology for the control of droplets and avoidance of liquid plugs in tubes with and without flow as in a condenser of a zero-gravity pumped phase-change loop for use in spaceflight. Predictive capability for the shape and stability of droplets or plugs of liquid is important for details of condenser flow passage design. The proposed sub-orbital payload seeks to produce rapidly a proof to create confidence in a predictive tool or, in the event of a negative outcome, it will serve as justification for necessary improved tool development.
