Abstract:

An experiment l technique is described for directly measuring the agnation point heat tra sfer rate to an aerodynamic model in an electromagnetic shock tube. The application to me suring the reduction in aerodynamic heating by magnetoaerodynamic means is specifically considered. Development of the instrument is discussed, and successful results of preliminary experiments are reported. The technique was found practical for magnetoaerodynamic heat transfer measurements and could be used to study radiative heat tr nsfer from ionized gases. Recommendations for future research are prese t d. Author
