Project: NASA Micro-Gravity Processing

A large component of NASA activities in the Space Station and Shuttle flights was focused on micro-gravity materials processing experiments in solidification and vapor transport experiments. We have worked on a number of microgravity materials processing programs with NASA scientists, as well as having worked with design and flight engineers to understand and optimize the hardware used in space experiments.

In one project we developed a high-fidelity computer model for the NASA Crystal Growth Furnace (CGF) which was deployed on board the Shuttle. The model was used to conduct very detailed simulations of a number of experiments to allow scientists identify experimental conditions best suited to their study as well as help in analyzing the results of their space experiments.
