  2. Propulsion Optimization of Thrust though Auxiliary Entrainment of Neutrals (PROTEAN)

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: State of the art Orbital Transfer Vehicle systems require the demanding combined requirements of both high Thrust-to-Power (greater than 120 mN/kW) and high specific impulse (greater than 3000 s), all at constant power. The 25 kW PROTEAN system is a two-stage plasmoid thruster which adds an secondary auxiliary Neutral Entrainment (NE) stage to the ElectroMagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT ...

  4. Computational Model for Electrode Erosion by High-Pressure Moving Arcs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF11BT25

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop theoretical models for electrode erosion in high-pressure arcs and incorporate them into computational tools for simulations of arc heaters. The complexity of the electrode material removal process is associated with the multi-phase nature of the arc-electrode interactions, melting and vaporization of the electrodes near the arc foot. Available mod ...
