    CV

    13/10/2009      Engineering Qualification

    26/02/2009     Master’s Degree in Space Aeronautic Engineering, University of Naples “Federico II

               Thesis :         

    Development and Thermofluidynamic Analysis of a Growth Chamber Model      of      Plants for Space Applications”.

    Abstract :

    This work was carried out in collaboration with the Microgravity Lab of the DIAS (Department of Aerospace Engineering) and the MARS Center for Aerospace Research (Finmeccanica group). It is a part of CAB project of Italian Space Agency (A.S.I.) This work thesis aims to answer the troubles of the next space exploration missions. Infact, space programs, as LUNA GAIA, aim to bring humans in the space for long period missions, so the great problem is food resources to support human life for an approximate period of 3 years. The solution is ECLLS (Enviromental Close Loop Life Support) ,which uses human fluid waste products (CO2 ,gray water,etc) to feed biomass. It returns water, food and oxygen to man  This brought to get the following goals:

    ∗ Production and food management;

    ∗ Air regeneration ( O2 production, C O2 removal and gas control );

    ∗ Water regeneration ;

    ∗ Waste management .

    Thanks to studies on the plants biology and physiology and themofluidodinamic processes within plant, I developed a close loop climate chamber . The goal of the thesis has been to optimize the process of interaction between vegetation and the environment in which to create a Space Greenhouse(SGH) in the future. The work based targets are:

    ∗ The optimization of the environmental conditioning system(based on an environmental plan system to recreate a good environment for the plants’ growth ).

    ∗ The development of prediction model for plant-environment interaction, based on thermofluidodinamic rules) ;

    Once achieved the requirements to obtain a good environment for plants development, I studied the photosynthetic process , the plant transpiration and convection so that I implemented the mathematical model considering the CO2. To compare experimental results, I made numerical simulations in CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamic) with and without plants in order to compare the end final results with the experimental once. Each time, during these simulations, I changed one or more themofluidodinamic parameters( for example Temperature ,Global Radiation etc).

    During the course of the studies I have deepened the following areas:

    • Aerospace Dynamic and Control Systems (Theory and applications of spacecraft attitude dynamics and control; attitude sensors and control actuators; spin, three-axis active, reaction wheel, control moment gyro, and gravity gradient control systems; environmental effects; Laplace transform techniques; linear feedback control systems; stability criteria; Nyquist stability theory)

    • Orbital Mechanics (The two-body problem; Kepler’s laws; equations of conic; orbital elements; orbital transfers; the N-body problem; orbit perturbation analysis; orbit determination and prediction: perturbation methods applied to trajectory analysis; impulsive orbit transfer and rendezvous)
