Abstract:

Samples of insulation materials under consideration for use on the various protuberances of the Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters and Solid Rocket Motors were tested to evaluate their survivability at simulated flight heating levels. Heat transfer calibration data were obtained by use of the thin-skin technique on several protuberance configurations. All tests were conducted in the VKF Tunnel C.
