Pool Boiling in Micro-Gravity Conditions
The main focus of this research was to simulate micro-gravity conditions on the International Space Station, and get new insights on the heat transfer characteristics of paramagnetic liquids. The experiment was conducted inside the zero gravity flight at the NASA Kennedy Space Center.
My Mechanical Engineering Master's Thesis
Characteristics Of Bubble Behavior In Microgravity Conditions.
Here's me in front of the zero-gravity flight before takeoff!
This is a video I took inside the zero-gravity flight while I was conducting the experiment.
I obtained lot of experimental data through these experiments that I later published in several International conferences.
The bubble behavior observations can be seen in this 30 fps video.
The video below is a slow motion 1000 fps video of the video above. The slow motion video shows the steady-state behavior clearly. This video was used for the frame by frame analysis of bubbles.
