Abstract:

The conditions under which the skin temperature of a radiation cooled vehicle in a dissociating atmosphere can exceed that in an inert atmosphere at the same vehicle velocity are investigated. If the Lewis-Semenov number for atom diffusion is greater than unity, this is found to be possible for both radiation-cooled active catalytic surfaces in the chemically frozen regime and solids of arbitrary catalytic activity in the chemical equilibrium region.
