Abstract:

Test facilities for the evaluation of materials at very high temperatures and heat fluxes are descrire an oxy-acetylene burner, a hydrogen-oxygen rocket motor and a fluid stabilized electric arc. The oxy-acetylene burner is used for ablation studies and rocket insulation materials evaluation. The hydrogen-oxygen rocket motor is utiliz d for screening rocket nozzle and insulation materials. The fluid sta ilized arc is used for ablation studies and general materials evaluation. Characteristics of these test facilities along with heat flux study data are given. Futured.
