- Ground based studies of two proposed experiments which were to be conducted aboard the Skylab Laboratory are reported; metals melting experiment, and sphere forming experiment. These studies were conducted with the objectives of clarifying the effects of gravity and optimizing the experiments within the constraints of existing hardware. All process phenomena were considered, with particular attention given to adhesion-cohesion studies with emphasis on the fluid dynamics of the molten metal. Detailed thermal histories were generated for three-dimensional specimen geometry including radiation, conduction and vaporization losses with allowances for variable properties. In addition quantitative techniques were used to establish the gravitational level (magnitude and direction) for KC-135 aircraft flights and the actual Skylab mission for both experiments.
