Abstract:

This document covers problems associated with one part of the thermal and atmospheric control study -- the analysis of radiation heat transfer in space. The basic theory of radiation heat transfer and the thermal radiation environment in space are described. Analysis techniques are included for calculating space vehicle surface temperatures and for solving radiation heat transfer problems in general. Tabulated configuration factor data and emittance data are presented.
