Pre-Flight Analysis and Post-Flight Assessment of ISS Mission 2R 2001-01-2254
A SINDA/FLUINT analysis of the 2R mission will be presented. The analysis will predict the air temperature, humidity, oxygen, and carbondioxide levels associated with initial permanent habitation of the International Space Station. The Expedition 1 crew will assemble several key Environmental Control and Life Support system components; namely the Vozdukh, Elektron, and Service Module air conditioner. The pre-flight analysis will be compared to actual flight data to validate assumptions and fidelity of the SINDA/FLUINT model. Differences will be evaluated to determine the cause, whether due to modeling deficiencies or invalid assumptions regarding timelined activities.
