Validation of Propellant Dynamics Model
n fluid dynamics, slosh refers to the movement of liquid inside a hollow object. We examine these dynamics in a scale-model of the Orion Service Module (SM) down-stream hydrazine propellant tank. The SM is a component of ...
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 ...
The Young’s Modulus of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were discovered in 1952, but their exciting properties have been brought to the attention of the scientific community only recently. CNTs, which can be thought of as rolled up sheets of graphene, ...
