Meeting: Thursday, Oct. 26 : Dr. Birkan of AFRL / AFOSR will speak on "Space Power and Propulsion" at 5 PM, Ballston location (see below for directions).
Abstract: Research activities fall into three areas: nonchemical orbit-raising propulsion, chemical propulsion, and plume signatures resulting from both chemical and nonchemical propulsion. Topics include characteristics of pulsed and steady-state plasmas; scaling physics; characteristics of flowing plasma; instabilities of plasma. Topics may also include the modeling of the coupling among unsteady flows, combustion, acoustic fields, and chemical kinetics, detonation phenomenon, modeling using novel tools such as molecular dynamics, direct simulation Monte Carlo, and hybrid approach.
