The power required to circulate fluids for various pressure drops and flow rates, and the power obtained from isentropic expansion of habitable gases for manned space assembly application have been investigated. The results demonstrate the feasibility of using habitable gases, stored under pressure, as potential energy sources to power fluid circulation devices. These findings indicate that significant weight savings can be obtained using the gas expansion technique to furnish the required power of fluid circulation as compared to using other power sources, such as batteries.
