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 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 ...
