Gibbs Ensemble Computer Simulations of Vapor Liquid Equilibrium of Hydrazine

Description: Hydrazine is a highly reactive liquid base. It is mainly used as a rocket propellant; other uses include but are not limited to, the production of spandex fibers, agricultural chemicals, nickel-plating, nuclear fuel reprocessing, production of plastics and in the removal of halogens from wastewater. Molecular modeling of hydrazine can be a safe and…

Experimental Demonstration of the Viability of Flow Boiling in a Variable Gravity Environment

Description: Many space-/air-craft electronics require cooling and flow boiling is considered by the scientific community as a potential option for this application. However, the viability of flow boiling in variable gravity environments is not well established. In this project, undergraduate students will build a flow boiling loop and launch it in a variable gravity rocket….
