Abstract:

ABSTRACT: Future fighter jets will be equipped with advanced sensors and systems which will dissipate increasing amounts of heat. To manage the heat loads, a thermal management system utilizing two-phase flow will be necessary. It is important to understand and predict the behavior of a thermal management system under all possible mission conditions. The Oceanit technology will quickly and accurately simulate the behavior of two-phase flow cooling systems under a wide range of operating conditions. We propose a combined experimental and numerical simulation approach to develop the technology. BENEFIT: The proposed research will explore the performance of two-phase flow cooling systems and their transient behavior. The technology could be used in commercial aircraft as well as military aircraft.
