Six samples were tested in the CML 1.5-inch air arc on 10 and 14 October 1958. All samples were positioned at 4-12 inches above the top electrode and were subjected to a step heat flux rate nonablating value or 1950 BTUsq ft 2-sec for a nominal period of 30 seconds. Data shown are 1 heat flux rate, 2 plasma characteristics, 3 time of exposure, 4 sample weights before and after test, 5 percentage weight loss, 6 photographs of samples before and after test, 7 sample silhouettes before and after test. Remarks are appended where additional information was deemed advisable. Author
