The Interphase Transport Phenomena Laboratory (ITP) is part of the Nuclear Engineering Department and works closely with the Spacecraft Engineering Research Center. The ITP has accumulated more than 10,000 parabolas of reduced gravity experience with NASA and 0g Corp. Aircraft. The ITP laboratory has extensive experience in the construction and testing of microgravity fluids experiments including projects for the Air Force Research Laboratory, multiple NASA Field Centers, Foster-Miller Inc., Creare Inc., Boeing, and Thermacore. The laboratory provides a number of facilities to carryout reduced gravity testing and has supported a number of companies and universities in completing their experiments in this unique environment. The laboratory maintains a number of flight qualified experiment packages that can be configured to meet customers needs. The laboratory utilizes flight proven instrumentation and data acquisition equipment as well as maintains a number of predictive codes for thermal-hydraulic behavior under reduced gravity conditions.
