Abstract:
The Capillary Pumped Loop (CAPL) Flight Experiment has undergone numerous design modifications to reflect recent changes in the thermal control system baselined for Earth Observation System (EOS) spacecraft. The experiment redesign has also allowed technological advances in two-phase fluid loop components to be incorporated. The experiment's reservoir is one of the components targeted for redesign.The design and development of a new reservoir for the CAPL Flight Experiment is discussed in this paper. A prototype reservoir is described, and a hydrodynamic analysis of its wick structure is included. Testing of the prototype reservoir is also discussed.
