Steady-State Modelling and Simulation of the “Technology Demonstration Model” Radiator 831145

The present paper details an original investigation based on the attainment of performance predictions of a radiator panel that is in itself a subsystem of the Technology Demonstration Model, an advanced heat rejection device conceived, and built, by AERITALIA SpA under Contract to ESA (European Space Agency) Since at the time of writing this report experimental results we re not available, expected correlations and contrasts will form the object of future communications. In this perspective, the feasibility of simulating via computer assisted analysis the aforementioned subsystem is demonstrated; this being achieved by an accurate build-up of the mathematical model and subsequent development of appropriate software tools grounded on the finite element method.
