    In physics, cryogenics is the production and behaviour of materials at very low temperatures.. It is not well defined at what point on the temperature scale refrigeration ends and cryogenics begins, but scientists assume a gas to be cryogenic if it can be liquefied at or below − °C ( K; − °F). The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology considers the field of. This book, viz. Cryogenic Engineering: Software solutions – Vol II, is the second in the series on Cryogenic Engineering: Software Solutions, and deals with the liquefaction of gases. Vol I of the series, published earlier, dealt with: Introduction and properties of cryogenic fluids and properties of materials at low temperatures.

    First there is an introduction to the behavior of materials at cryogenic temperatures—solids, liquids, and gases. A review of the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer at low temperatures is provided. Cryogenic refrigeration cycles are modelled and analyzed. An orbital propellant depot is a cache of propellant that is placed in orbit around Earth or another body to allow spacecraft or the transfer stage of the spacecraft to be fueled in space. It is one of the types of space resource depot that have been proposed for enabling infrastructure-based space exploration.

      Transfer Lines. This article, written by Dr. John Weisend, was originally published in the Winter issue of Cold Facts as part of his series, Defining Cryogenics.. Transfer lines may in some real sense be thought of as the cryogenic fluid analogy of current leads. Surface Tension PMD Tank for On Orbit Fluid Transfer. Mission demonstration concept for the long-duration storage and transfer of cryogenic propellants. Development of simulation testbed for autonomous On-Orbit Servicing technology. Simple, robust cryogenic .

Cryogenic fluid transfer operations in the low-gravity environment of Earth orbit are necessary for many NASA mission concepts. Fluid transfer brings several benefits to the performance of space missions. Spacecraft already on orbit can be resupplied with cryogenic propellants, coolant fluids Cited by: Get this from a library.

On-orbit cryogenic fluid transfer. [John C Aydelott; John P Gille; Ralph N Eberhardt; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. On-orbit cryogenic fluid transfer. By J. Aydelott, J. Gille and R. Eberhardt. Abstract.

A number of future NASA and DOD On-orbit cryogenic fluid transfer book have been identified that will require, or could benefit from resupply of cryogenic liquids in orbit. The most promising approach for On-orbit cryogenic fluid transfer book 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.

The most promising approach for accomplishing cryogenic fluid transfer in the weightlessness environment. 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.

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. Cryogenic Engineering deals with production, storage, transfer and safe handling, measurement and utilization of cryogenic fluids.

Cryogenic fluid transfer operations in the low-gravity environment of Earth orbit are necessary for many NASA mission concepts.

Fluid transfer brings several benefits to the performance of space. Cryogenic fluid transfer and handling for spacecraft propulsion systems, launch facility ground processing, and Lunar surface systems are critical to the advancement of NASA’s exploration goals.

Technology development in cryogenic fluid transfer and handling directly supports the Lunar Lander, Ground Operations, Ares, and Lunar Surface Systems programs. Cryogenic Fluid Management (CFM) technology is an integral part of exploration systems for Earth-to-Orbit Transportation, manned missions to the Moon and Mars, Planetary Exploration, and In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU).
