Abstract:

A materials screening test was conducted in the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility Wind Tunnel C to determine the performance of several high- temperature, polymeric and metallic composite materials being considered for use as missile structural components. Test conditions were representative of the aerothermal environment encountered during the projected flight of a high- performance, short-range air-to-air missile SRAAM. Author
