Abstract
An innovative flow control device will be built and tested. Based on cryogenically proven, highly efficient Venturi-Offset Technology (VOST) developed for NASA, it has no stem-actuator, few moving parts, and an overall cylindrical shape. Consistently demonstrating breakthroughs in flow control, VOST technology provides precise linear flow control across its entire dynamic range, holds position without power, and requires remarkably low actuation energy. This project will demonstrate the viability of using VOST for autonomous, bi-directional, self-powered, low-pressure drop isolation valves for shipboard use.
