Abstract:

The possible flow patterns over and heat transfer to a porous fibrous structure in a re-entry environment are examined in detail. The expressions for a theoretical estimate of the heat transfer increase to the structure are developed. Unqualified statements of the precise heat transfer increase as a function of structure porosity are not possible in light of the obvious need for experimental verification. However, the investigation indicates that a moderate porosity can be tolerated without a significant temperature increase under some flight conditions. Author
