  3. Intermediate Temperature Fluids for Heat Pipes and Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1004

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop heat pipe and loop heat pipe (LHP) working fluids for what is known as the intermediate temperature range, from roughly 500 K to 700 K. Currently, there are no working fluids in this range that can be used in NASA applications, due in part to unknown physical properties and insufficient life test data. The overall objective of ...

  7. Efficient and Accurate Computational Framework for Injector Design and Analysis

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: X701

    CFD codes used to simulate upper stage expander cycle engines are not adequately mature to support design efforts. Rapid and accurate simulations require more versatile grid frameworks to handle complex geometries of multi-element injector configurations. Turbulence models require upgrades to better predict fuel/air mixing with swirl and to predict heat flux. The innovation proposed initiates wor ...
