  7. Properties Investigation of High-MON Oxidizers for Use in Deep Space Exploration

    SBC: Frontier Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T9

    Rocket propulsion for deep space applications typically use liquid propellants for axial stage and attitude control systems. The most common propellants are hydrazine (N2H4) and monomethylhydrazine (MMH) (CH3N2H3) for the fuels, and nitrogen tetroxide (NTO) (N2O4) for the oxidizer. The freezing points of both hydrazine and NTO approach room temperature and require on-board electrical heaters for t ...

  9. Fast, Parallel, High-Quality Voronoi Mesh Generator

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A1

    In this work we propose to further develop and demonstrate a mesh generation approach based on clipped Voronoi diagrams. This approach to mesh generation has the potential to significantly improve performance and robustness, while retaining important elements of high quality meshes including boundary alignment, stretching, and element regularity. Clipped Voronoi diagrams also automatically de-feat ...

  10. UAM Disturbance Rejection in Conceptual Design

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: A1

    Complex and often violent urban wind environments pose a significant challenge to the safety and ride quality for vehicles intended for the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market. UAM aircraft concepts must have control authority, turbulence rejection, and ride comfort as figures of merit at the forefront of the configuration selection process. However, the evaluation of handling qualities has tradi ...
