The RCS Leak Scenario

Below is the introductory page generated by DME for the RCS Scenario. You will see examples of pages from the scenario throughout the rest of the guided tour. The highlighted text indicates the options DME offers. We have disabled these options in the guided tour, but you may at any time enter the running DME scenario by clicking on "Enter Live DME Scenario" at the bottom of the page.

RCS leak scenario Introduction

Welcome to the RCS leak scenario. This scenario describes how a leak is tracked down in the Reaction Control System (RCS) of the NASA space shuttle.

This scenario is produced by a numerical simulation using the Device Modeling Environment (DME) developed at the (KSL) at Stanford University.
