Abstract:

Heat transfer and distribution tests were conducted on rigid models of the ballute, and drag measurements were obtained on flexible models which were either inflated with ram air or pre-inflated with a bladder. The flexible models were fabricated from a woven stainless steel cloth Rene 41 cloth and impregnated with a silicone polymer to decrease porosity. The Reynolds number range investigated was from 0.3610exp6 to 1.8010exp6 per foot, and all data were obtained at zero angle of attack.
