Abstract:

Pertinent factors affecting the function of thermal protection systems are reviewed with emphasis on glide re-entry applications. Review is made and new information is generated in the areas of 1 system, material, and design performance criteria needed for evaluation, 2 methods and techniques necessary for experimental and theoretical acquisition of the necessary parameters, 3 correlation of data to present information for the material selection and development effort, and protection system design use, 4 design and development techniques for built-up shield - structure components vehicle sizing, and 5 basic mechanisms of heat and mass transfer associated with the mode of heat absorption or dissipation and of load carrying and transmission capacity.
