04-M30-MP-2003Computation of the supersonic ascent of sounding rockets using ANSYS CFX and ICEM

Projektplenum (Teaching)
ECTS: 12

This project aims at creating a simulation environment to ease the simulation of the ascent of sounding rockets using CFD approaches. The simulation will be carried out using ANSYS CFX in combination with the ANSYS ICEM mesher. It shall allow to adapt the geometry of a sounding rocket without the necessity of setting up a new mesh in ICEM.

The objectives and your tasks in this project will be:

Read best practices for CFX and ICEM
Understand the Theory behind it
Make yourself familar with existing simulation setup for a blunted nosecone (MAIUS)
Use existing setup to make wall thickness variabel in ICEM, without needing to adapt meshing setup
Include Air in the interior
Compare to measurements in MAIUS
Make length, diameter and angle variable in ICEM without need of changing the ICEM setup significantly
Ausgabegrößen (Wandtemperatur, Staupunkt, Druck auf Struktur)

Optional: Second Setup for Ogive Nosecone
Optional: Include fins and motors
Optional: Include ablative coating in simulation
Optional: Allow Rotation and an Angle of attack > 0°

Entwicklung einer autogenen Bedrückungseinheit für die Compact-Sat Mission FROST

Projektplenum (Teaching)
ECTS: 12

Within this project the phase-B development of an Autogenous Pressurization Unit (APU) for the DLR Compact-Sat payload “Future-oriented Research platform for Orbital cryogenic Storage Technologies” (FROST) shall be assisted in strong cooperation with the FROST team. An APU is used to pressurize cryogenic tank systems with evaporated fluid. Within the project planned activities are:
1) Numerical 1D-analysis of the pressurization cycle
2) Develop and build a Bread-Board Test
3) Perform first functional tests
4) Compare test results to simulations
5) Documentation of those activities

04-M30-MP-2053Ultrahigh Vacuum Technologies for Quantum applications

Projektplenum (Teaching)
ECTS: 12

This project aims at a systematic investigation of ultrahigh vacuum technologies for cold atom instruments. Different tools (ANSYS, Inventor, Python,…) and experimental methods (Helium leak detection, absorption spectroscopy, vibration testing, …) will be used to qualify and develop technologies for vacuum seals and oven technologies as alkali-metal source. It shall answer open questions for vacuum systems of cold atom technologies.

The objectives and your tasks in this project will be:

  • Read and understand challenges of ultrahigh vacuum systems
  • Understand the Theory behind it
  • Make yourself familiar with existing simulation setup for structural/thermal simulations
  • Adapt existing lab hardware to fill and test ovens
  • Test CF-knife edges on dynamic loads (shaker)
  • Design and build an oven prototype
  • Test oven prototype under operating conditions
  • Write and adapt a software for the oven filling facility

Projektplenum (Teaching)
ECTS: 12

A system that was developed for the exact leveling and positioning
of sensitive satellite parts during the AIV process of the
Eu:CROPIS mission.
This experimental device is now to be developed further and
refined to possibly establish a spin-off product.
The main tasks include:
• Development of power, charging and data interfaces
• Development of the basic leveling functionality
• Development of the additional “kinetic sensory” functionality
• Development of the additional “HD camera” functionality
• Development of the firmware for communication and data
interfaces
• Development of the associated API
• Documentation

04-M30-MP-2055Phase 0 Design of a small Electrically Augmented Expander Cycle Engine
Phase 0 Entwicklung eines kleinen Elektrisch Unterstützen Exander Zyklus Triebwerks

Projektplenum (Teaching)
ECTS: 12

Phase 0 design of an expander cycle rocket engine for use in future
RLVs and/or upper stages.
This expander cycle engine should be augmented by an electric
pump and provide deep throttling, multi restart capability and green
propellants (IRSU production would be a plus). It should operate in
the lower tens-of kilonewton range and should rely on electrical
motor components that can be acquired of the shelf (COTS) for
example form the high-powered drone sector.
• Propellant choice and performance calculation
• Cycle design
• Trade studies taking available components into account
• Initial rough CAD model (Solidworks licences will be
provided)
• Overall engine performance modelling and estimation
• Documentation of the project
o
Written, models and CAD
Some previous Master thesis with specific pump design models
and data can be used as basis.
