Abstract

The paper focuses on heat and mass transfer research issues pertaining to the current development of, spacecraft active thermal control systems, i.e, the development of two-phase heat transport system technology. Topics (of paramount interest) discussed are: the development and the in-orbit demonstration of Capillary Pumped Loop and Loop Heat Pipe technology, the thermal/gravitational scaling of two-phase heat transport systems, including the aspects of two-phase flow pattern mapping, and the prediction of gravity level dependent condensation, plus the development of the various two-phase heat transport system components like vapour quality sensors, high efficiency low pressure drop condensers, and rotatable thermal joints.
