Presentation Title A Review on Thermophysical Property Measurements of Liquid Metallic Drops on Parabolic Flights, Texus Rocket Flights and the International Space Station

On-Site Speaker (Planned) Hans J. Fecht
Abstract Scope Over the last decade, thermophysical properties of metallic melts in the high temperature regime relevant for industrial solidification processes were measured using an electromagnetic levitation device. This method is particularly suited for high temperature reactive alloys, such as Ni-, Ti-, Cu- and Fe-based alloys where container reactions affect the results obtained with conventional methods. Parabolic flights provide about 20 seconds of reduced gravity which are only sufficient to heat, melt, process in the liquid phase and cool a 7 mm diameter specimen to solidification. Entire sets of high precision data of thermophysical properties in the liquid and undercooled liquid regime have recently been obtained over extended periods of time using the MRL-EML device on the International Space Station ISS. The experiments were performed within the framework of the ThermoLab project representing a truly international cooperation supported by ESA, NASA, DLR, JAXA, SSO and CNES. Recent results will be presented.
