This program is concerned with determining the convective heat transfer characteristics of pyrogen igniters in both the aft-end and head-end configurations for three-pointed star and conocyl motor grains. Heat transfer modeling tests using thin-plate calorimetric techniques are being used to evaluate the heat transfer distributions. The third quarter effort reported was directed toward completion of the model heat transfer tests, preparation of the model heat transfer data for machine computation, initiation of build-up for the demonstration motor firings, continuance of the head-end and aft-end fluid dynamic analysis, completion of a description of the HOTGAS computer program, and initiation of that portion of data reduction requiring machine computation.
