Abstract:

This two-volume report describes a Fortran IV computer code which computes the transient thermal and ablation response of a charring insulation material structure. The program is for one-dimensional bodies, but can treat a variety of shapes, including planes, cylinders, spheres, and more general thermal 6stream tube6 bodies. The program can treat complex systems including a main ablating material, several charring back-up materials, and a multiple non-charring material back-up structure. The code has seen extensive use for thermal performance studies of ablating heat shields, rocket nozzles, and spacecraft structures. Volume I OF THIS REPORT CONTAINS DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PROBLEM TREATED, THE EQUATIONS SOLVES, THE INPUT INFORMATION REQUIRED OF THE PROGRAM USER, AND THE PROGRAM OUTPUT INFORMATION. It also provides a card-by-card users input guide and a number of sample problems input and output listings.
