On-orbit cryogenic fluid transfer. By J. C. Aydelott, J. P. Gille and R. N. Eberhardt. Abstract. A number of future NASA and DOD missions have been identified that will require, or could benefit from resupply of cryogenic liquids in orbit. The most promising approach for accomplishing cryogenic fluid transfer in the weightlessness environment. It begins with a chapter introducing the thermodynamic relations and functional forms for equations of state, and goes on to describe the requirements for thermodynamic property formulations, needed for the complete definition of the thermodynamic properties of a fluid. The core of the book comprises extensive data tables and charts for the most commonly-encountered cryogenic by: On-orbit cryogenic fluid transfer. By J. P. Gille, R. N. Eberhardt and J. C. Aydelott.

Cryogenic fluid transfer allows the reuse of hardwa re already in orbit, thus reducing lift mass. Stages Stages initially filled on-orbit can eliminate many of the sy stems and structural mass Author: David Chato. Subcritical cryogenic fluid management (CFM) has long been recognized as an enabling technology for future space applications such as Space Transfer Vehicles (for nearearth, lunar and interplanetary missions) and On-Orbit Cryogenic Fuel Depots. Space Station Freedom may also derive benefits from an understanding of by: 1. Welcome to our Cryogenics Website. What Cryogenics Is And Isn't. Cryogenics is the study of low temperatures, from about Kelvin ( Fahrenheit) down to absolute zero. In more detail, cryogenics is: the study of how to produce low temperatures; the study of what happens to materials when you've cooled them down. Abstract. The Cryogenic On-Orbit Liquid Depot Storage, Acquisition and Transfer Satellite (COLD-SAT) is an experimental spacecraft launched from an expendable launch vehicle which is designed to investigate the systems and technologies required for efficient, effective and reliable management of cryogenic fluid in the reduced gravity space : William J. Bailey.

the prior techniques ineffective for microgravity cryogenic refueling [1]. Cryogenic fluid transfer allows the reuse of hardware already in orbit, thus reducing lift mass. Stages initially filled on-orbit can eliminate many of the systems and structural mass required to support and maintain cryogens on the launch pad. Transfer allows tanksFile Size: KB. Many future space based vehicles and satellites will require on orbit refuelling procedures. Cryogenic fluid management technology is being developed to assess the requirements of such procedures as well as to aid in the design and development of these vehicles. Cryogenic fluid management technology for this application could be divided into two areas of study, one is concerned with fluid. Perhaps the most important and widely-used fluids are liquefied natural gas or LNG (bp = boiling point about K), liquid oxygen (bp K) and liquid nitrogen (bp K). The availability of cryogenic fluids forms an essential part of the infrastructure of a modem industrialized and civilized society. According to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), ‘Cryogenic temperature range’ generally refers to temperatures below C i.e. K. Cryogenic Engineering deals with production, storage, transfer and safe handling, measurement and utilization of cryogenic fluids.
