Abstract:

THERMAL HEAT LOADS ON SPACECRAFT ARE VARIABLE. RADIATORS SIZED FOR PEAK LOADS ARE LARGER THAN NECESSARY FOR AVERAGE LOAD . HEAT SINKS WOULD ALLOW THE RADIATORS TO BE SIZED FOR THE AVERAGE THERMAL HEAT LOAD. METAL HEAT SINKS ARE TOO HEAVY AND PHASE CHANGE MATERIALS HAVE TOO SLOW A TEMPORAL RESPONSE FOR MANY APPLICATIONS. METAL\PHASE CHANGE MATERIAL COMPOSITES ARE LIGHT WEIGHT AND HAVE A FASTER RESPONSE THAN EITHER COMPONENT. WE DESCRIBE A THREE PART PROGRAM TO ANALYTICALLY MODEL COMPOSITES, EVALUATE AND TEST MATERIALS, AND TO CONSTRUCT A PROTOTYPE COMPOSITE HEAT SINK.
