Abstract:

The report contains summaries of Surveys of the literature on structural and design aspects of thermal protection systems, on compatibility of refractory materials, on thermal and mechanical properties of refractory materials, and on methods for measuring emittance of materials at high temperature. Experimental determination of the thermal conductance of plasma sprayed coatings of alumina-nickel and zirconiaNichrome types. Measurements of total normal emittance of materials in an oxidizing atmosphere at temperatures of 1000 to 4000F. Experimental investigations of the effects of composition on the thermal expansion and total normal emittance of zirconia and magnesia. Analytical and experimental studies of the general characteristics and weight requirements of transpiration cooled nose caps using porous metal surfaces. Author
