Abstract:

Open-ended Terms Heat shields. Radiant-heater tests were made for a graphite heat shield without insulation and with three types of insulating material, and for a metal multipost heat shield. Ethylene-heated-jet survival tests were made for the basic graphite heat shield, an insulated multipost heat shield, and a stainless-steel-tile heat shield. The basic graphite heat shield also was tested in an acoustic facility. Temperature distributions were measured and a numerical procedure was used to predict the temperature distribution through t e metallic multipost heat shield. Author
