Abstract:

This study of the effect of radiant energy impinging on long tubular elements in space investigates the temperature distribution along the perimeter and the axis of the element and the resulting profile changes. The results are condensed into equations and into a profile chart, allowing examination of the particular profile of an element in outer space, or in an orbit around the earth. The time constant of the element is also investigated analytically.
