Fluid systems play a large role in life support, environmental controls, and thermal control systems. While there are databases and models of fluid flows in microgravity, there is no empirical data, nor models which examine fluids in partial gravity, such as Lunar or Martian gravities. In order to design the next generation of life support systems, the Aerospace Human Systems Laboratory (AHSL) at Texas A&M University plans to investigate fluid physics in variable gravity levels.
At the Aerospace Human Systems Laboratory (AHSL), there are a number of research projects that occur, focusing on human space systems. AHSL is researching, in particular, how EVA suits are created with the goal of prototyping our own iteration of EVA suits.
