Measurements of the Collection Efficiency of an Air Cyclone in Lunar Gravity
(Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, 2009-03-15)
We report experimental results on the collection efficiency of an air cyclone operating with a lunar dust simulant under lunar gravity. Microgravity collection efficiency is, to within experimental uncertainty, not different ...
Computational Fluid Dynamics Study of an Air Cyclone in Reduced Pressure and Gravity
We investigate the performance of a small air cyclone under varying gravity and pressure con- ditions, using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program. We simulate dust loading in the cyclone and calculate filtration ...
Computational Fluid Dynamics Model of a Cyclone Separator
Air cyclones are a promising technology for first stage air filtration in future lunar habitats where lunar dust mitigation is a mission critical concern. Our experimental work with cyclones in microgravity as part of ...
