Vapor-Liquid Equilibrium on Titan: Modeling and Analysis
2011 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The work presented here is a M.Sc. thesis in Space Engineering and Space Science at LuleƄ University of Technology that was conducted at NASA Ames in California. By interpreting data collected by the Huygens probe during its mission to the Titan equatorial regions, an hypothesis suggesting dew on Titan is formed. To investigate this possibility a vapor-liquid equilibrium model is constructed. The results from this model are put in an energy balance model by Williams and the dew approach is tested. Calculations from Huygens data and dew model results suggest that all the liquid existing at the Huygens probe's landing site is not evaporated, neither on a diurnal nor on an annual cycle. Dew forming on Titan is therefore discarded as highly improbable.
