Abstract:

High pressure ablation data for graphite and carbon-phenolic are analyzed to establish the magnitude of discrepancies between measured ablation rates and smooth-wall thermochemical ablation response predictions. Comparison presented for laminar and turbulanet conditions. The ratio of predicted-to- measured recession for laminar and turbulentt flow for both materials correlate moderately well with local pressure.
