Mathematical Modeling of Adsorption Processes for the International Space Station Water Processor

1995-07-01
951629
A mathematical model is presented for analysis and optimization of the adsorbents in the multifiltration beds contained in the International Space Station (ISS) water processor. The model consists of a physical properties database, an equilibrium description for single and multicomponent adsorption, and a kinetic description for adsorption beds in the water processor. The model is verified on a surrogate mixture designed to mimic the adsorption potential of the ISS shower/handwash waste stream.

Ion Exchange Model Development for the International Space Station Water Processor

1995-07-01
951628
A mathematical model is presented for analysis and optimization of the ion exchange beds in the International Space Station (ISS) Water Processor. The model consists of a physical properties database, an equilibrium description for binary and multicomponent ion exchange, and a kinetic description for ion exchange beds in the Water Processor. The ion exchange model will be verified for an Ersatz water designed to mimic the ISS shower/handwash waste stream.

A Methodology for Rapid Calculation of Computational Thermal Models

1995-02-01

Too often many heat management problems are not solved with thermal analysis because of excessive complexity, time, and cost. A method for quickly solving a sophisticated thermal/fluid system with minimal user interaction and with common desktop computer resources is presented. A desktop (Microsoft Windows™) thermal analysis package, WinTherm, consists of the Generic Processor (pre-processing software), the 3-D Thermal Model (a finite difference nodal network solver), and an Image Viewer (wireframe and animated thermal display). The theoretical basis for this thermal analysis toolkit will be discussed as well as examples of its implementation.
