Abstract:

The report presents the results of the third phase of an investigation to determine the feasibility of extending ablation test facility capability by surrounding the high enthalpy flow with a coaxial cold jet. The technique was applied to the 5-MW arc heated facility at pressures up to 80 atm. A variety of data probes and models were used to determine flow-model interactions. Final results show that the technique simulates flow satisfactorily over very large ablation models.
