Abstract:

The primary purpose of this program is to develop a high temperature 3500-6000F indicating system in order to obtain internal temperature measurements in ablative type materials during rocket motor firings. During the first phase of work, a state-of-the-art survey was conducted to determine those necessary factors which would permit the accurate measurement of in depth temperatures. A high-temperature indicating system was designed based upon the phase equilibrium of refractory materials in the 3500-6000F range.
