Abstract
THE NEXT GENERATION OF INNOVATIVVE CONCEPTS FOR THERMAL DEVICES FOR POWER SYSTEMS AND THERMAL LOOPS IN SPACECRAFT INVOLVE TWO-PHASE FLOW. THESE DEVICES UTILIZES THE LIQUID-VAPOR PHASE CHANGE IN BOILING AND CONDENSING PROCESSES IN ORDER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE HIGHER HEAT TRANSPORT RATES, LOWER WEIGHT, AND NEAR-ISOTHERMAL OPERATION AND CONTROL OF TWO-PHASE SYSTEMS COMPARED WITH CONVENTIONAL APPROACHES. THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO PROVIDE A UNIQUE DESIGN GUIDEBOOK (A DOCUMENTED DESIGN MANUAL) FOR TWO-PHASE DEVICES FOR VARIABLE GRAVITY ENVIRONMENTS, INCLUDING MICROGRAVITY.
