Abstract    The multicomponent, multiphase, reacting flow inside a liquid propellant
rocket thrust chamber influences both the performance and life of the rocket engine.
 A unique Lagrangian discrete particle transport model has been developed and combined
with an existing state-of-the-art, multidimensional, time-dependent, compressible
Eulerian Navier-Stokes computer code.  The procedure was successfully used to compute
a gas/particle flow with strong interaction due to droplet evaporation.  The effort
will continue the development of this computer code by investigating and implementing
an advanced turbulent dispersion model for particle motion, and a stochatic droplet
injection model.  These models will be evaluated extensively and detailed comparisons
with available experimental data will be made.  A sensitivity study will be conducted
to determine the applicability of the various models to liquid propellant rocket
thrust chamber flows.  Also, the convergence of the Eulerian-Lagrangian coupling
procedure will be improved by use of matrix conditioning and other applicable techniques
in order to reduce code execution times signifi-
cantly.  Both the Eulerian and Lagrangian analyses will be modified to include a
sufficient number of species to adequately model typical liquid propellant combustion
process.  A turbulent flow combustion model will be developed, implemented and tested
by comparison with experimental data.  Several axisymmetric reacting flow calculations
for rocket thrust chambers will be performed.  Finally, the analysis will be extended
to treat three-dimensional thrust chamber flows, and will be demonstrated by a calculation
for a realistic chamber-injector configuration.  Additional computer code variation
will be performed to decrease computer run time.

Abstract    A full-size model of a life support system has been designed and constructed
to sustain a lactating rat and her offspring during a Shuttle mission.  The configuration
of this burrow-like habitat meets the spatial and environmental requirements of the
Shuttle middeck.  An innovative aspect of the design phase was a program of observational
and choice tests of animals, which was used to establish their needs and preferences.
 The Habitat model includes:  nest, den, passageway, waste and airhandling modules,
lighting and temperature control, regulated airflow, two video cameras and timelapse
recording capability, as well as food and water provisions for the full mission.
 Further objectives are:  (a) construction of a flight-type prototype of the Animal
Development Habitat, (b) provision of extensive bioengineering data on its functional
characteristics and the quality of animal life within it, (c) assembly drawings,
and (d) videographic documentation of Habitat structure and function.  Use of the
Habitat by NASA and private interests is anticipated on the Shuttle and space station.
 Components developed for the project have commercial potential.
