Physico-chemical processes and materials in space conditions
Evaluation of convection effects during high-speed phase transitions under conditions of floating-zone refining of Cu-Zr metal alloys in comparative measurements in the on-the-ground (1g) and microgravity environments.
- Study of samples of metal alloys from «batch 1.3» cartridges.
Equipment for the experiment:
MSL-ÝÌË furnace consisting of:
- experimental Module;
- space experiment electronic control unit;
- high-speed video camera;
- power supply and water cooling unit;
- gas supply unit;
- container for storing cartridges with samples;
- cartridge with samples;
- samples loading unit.
This experiment results in kits with samples obtained after conducting all the planned sessions (the kit dimensions are 260x215x170 mm, and its mass is 4 kg).
