In multi-layer insulation (MLI) for space or terrestrial cryogenic applications, large densities of gas molecules (particles) between individual layers reduce the thermal performance of the insulation because particle collisions transfer heat. This poses an incentive to provide pathways for particles to escape the system quickly, such as perforatio...


... The current state-of-the-art work is on molecular dynamics simulation of interlayer gases for MLI. Martin [13] used the Test Particle Monte Carlo (TPMC) method to investigate the outgassing behavior of MLI setups at the end of pumping. Theoretically, simulations with TPMC methods can provide pressure values at arbitrary locations inside the MLI and even the pressure distribution through the thickness of the MLI [13]. ...
