Adaptable Single Active Loop Thermal Control System (TCS) for Future Space Missions

The primary objectives of this study are to develop (1) a fundamental understanding of two-phase transport phenomena and (2) design concepts for a thermal control system (TCS) for future space missions. The proposed system architecture will enable the TCS to be reconfigured during the various mission phases to respond, not only to varying heat load, but to heat rejection temperature as well.
