Computer simulation of a two-phase Capillary Pumped Loop (CPL) using SINDA/FLUINT
Ryan, Peter J
MetadataShow full item record
The heat transfer performance of a prototype capillary pumped loop (CPL) test bed from the U.S. Air Force Phillips Laboratory is modeled using numerical differencing techniques. A commercial computer code was used to create the model and simulate performance over a wide range of operating conditions. Steady state and transient performance were modeled as part of the initial phase of testing in a program designed to evaluate the effectiveness and reliability of capillary pumped loop technology for use in spacecraft thermal control. The performance baseline developed in this phase of testing will serve as the foundation for continued research and development of this technology
