Science Scope: NASA EPSCoR R3 Appendix A (SMD Planetary Division): Material response of woven heat shield material in Venusian atmosphere

Grants and Contracts Details


1 PROPOSAL SUMMARY (ABSTRACT) The NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Rapid Response Research (R3) program, in collaboration with the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) and Commercial Partnerships Office, seeks proposals that will address research issues important to NASA with a goal of researchers working for one year to solve defined NASA technical problems. This proposal addresses problems listed in the solicitation under Appendix A, SMD Task A, High- Temperature Subsytems and Components for Long-Duration (months) Surface Operations. The proposed work will build on preivious work, and shift focus on the development of reliable gas-surface interaction models Venus atmospheric entry. The model development will be specifically designed for Thermal Protection System made of woven carbon preform. The effect of the TPS structure with the high-pressure high-temperature effects of the atmosphere will studied, including the effects of radiation penetration, due to the expected presence of CN gas in the post-shock region. i
