A New Contamination Analysis Software 2000-01-2525
This paper describes the new analysis software for the contamination modelling and outgassing / vent analysis, which has been developed under ESTEC contract by HTS and ONERA.
A major part of the software enhancements have been dedicated to the improvement of the algorithms describing the physical processes involved in outgassing and contamination of species in orbit conditions.
However, this paper concentrates on additional aspects of the new software tool, which are of interest for space environment analysis software development in general and the thermal analysis community in particular:
The use of commercial software packages for the generation of the discrete model geometry and result visualisation.
The interfacing possibilities of the software tool with thermal analysis tools.
