Looking for information on spacecraft thermal analysis

Looking for information on spacecraft thermal analysis

Looking for information on spacecraft thermal analysis

(OP)
Hi,

I'm looking to meet with / collaborate with persons experienced with spacecraft thermal design. Specifically, anyone who's used software tools like C&RT Thermal Desktop, Sinda, Fluint.

I have experience with ground-based thermal system design (small electronics products) but want to branch out into new areas.

Thanks.

Mike Pinch

RE: Looking for information on spacecraft thermal analysis

M... This is a very specialized engineering field.

We assume You have the basics...

NASA SmallSat Institute 7. Thermal Control https://www.nasa.gov/smallsat-institute/sst-soa/th...
SPACECRAFT THERMAL CONTROL [NASA, GSFC, 2001] https://ntrs.nasa.gov/api/citations/20010091676/do...
SPACECRAFT THERMAL CONTROL HANDBOOK, VOLUME I: FUNDAMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES 2-ED, ISBN 978-1884989117
SPACECRAFT THERMAL CONTROL HANDBOOK, VOLUME 2: CRYOGENICS, 2-ED ISBN 978-1884989148
SPACECRAFT THERMAL CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES, ISBN 9789811549830
Etc...

Now... search-for, and contact, these Authors or their sponsors or main organizations/companies...

Wil,

Thanks for the reply and information. I'll review the links.

Yes, this is certainly a specialized field. From the limited online research I've done thus far, there's an amazing amount of knowledge aside from the analytical tools themselves in terms of systems engineering.

mikito… experience provides insight!

In my current neighborhood, I met a old retired fella who was a 'Boeing employee for a day'. He had started a small spaceflight 'attitude controls' company in the 1960s which was eventually an industry leader... which he sold to Boeing in the 2000s and headed for full and comfortable retirement.

Much good fortune in Your ventures!

Wil,

An excellent anectode! I thank you.

For any others reading, time to start something new.
