Thesis Defense by Kayla Daniels on April 25th
Space Studies Master’s student, Kayla Daniels, will defend her thesis as follows. Please show your support by attending.
When: Tuesday, April 25th at 2:00 p.m. (Central DST)
Where: Ryan Hall, Room 111
Title: "Thermal Performance Analysis of the Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment (LCVG) with Respect to Tubing Geometry"
About the topic: This thesis compares heat transfer rates between the EMU LCVG circular cross-section tubing against a tubing geometry with a larger contact surface area. The selected tubing geometry for analysis was a semi-circle cross-section. Due to the larger surface contact area between the skin and tubing, it was postulated that higher heat transfer rates would be calculated when compared to the EMU LCVG tubing. A tubing geometry able to provide higher heat transfer rates suggests that the wearer will be able to operate the systems at a warmer temperature while receiving the necessary thermal regulation from the garment.
About the presenter: Kayla Daniels graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a degree in Applied Meteorology. In the summer of 2018, she completed an internship in Houston, TX with ILC Dover as a Design Engineer. She now works as an Associate Engineering Technologist at ILC Dover in DE where she inspects spacesuit items and supports spacesuit design and testing.
