Research supervisor: A.P.Petrov

russian
   

Space experiment MATI-75 is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of MATI K.E.Tsiolkovsky Russian State Technological University and 150th anniversary of the founder of the theoretical space science Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky.


THE SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT USED:

Poroplast kit.

SUPPORT EQUIPMENT:

HDV Sony HVR-Z1 video camera.

CONSUMABLES:

DVCAM video cassette.

 

PURPOSE:

  • To demonstrate the effect of shape and size recovery and stabilization when exposing to heating and cooling in zero gravity a plastic piece precompressed on the ground.
  • To give students and post-graduate students practical skills in staging a space experiment and conducting ground studies of foamed polymer material structure obtained in the ground and space environments.

OBJECTIVES:

To demonstrate and record on video the process of recovery under heating and stabilization under cooling of the shapes and dimensions of foamed polyurethane pieces.

EXPERIMENT RESULTS:

  • Obtained samples: blocks (cubes, cylinders) and promotional materials (MATI-75 logo and K.E.Tsiolkovsky bas-relief);
  • Video records of the plastic foam size and shape recovery process.
