›2013 Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop
The 2013 Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop -- The objective of this annual workshop is to provide the aerospace community a forum to share information relative to new technology developments and lessons learned in spacecraft thermal control. In its 24th year, sessions at this year's workshop will address aspects of spacecraft thermal control, including thermal test methods and applications, heat pipe technology, advanced analysis methods and techniques, and advanced thermal control hardware.
A pre-workshop tutorial covering thermophysics application in microgravity will be held on March 25. Main topics include progress in fundamental research in thermal control technologies and flight applications for recent or upcoming missions. These technology discussions focus on single and two-phase flow technologies, convective and conductive heat transfer applications in microgravity, innovative thermal control devices, advanced thermal control concepts for future missions, spray cooling, and the latest developments in thermal control coatings. This session will also be held at The Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, Calif.
Who should attend the Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop? Thermal engineers, systems engineers, program office managers, and professors or students with a thermal fluid background. Representatives from industry, academia, and the military are encouraged to attend.
