Wind tunnel tests of the Space Shuttle External Tank foam insulation, with simulated lightning protectors, were conducted in the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility Tunnel C. The tests were conducted to examine three lightning conductive coating materials for debris production potential in simulated convective heating environments. The material samples were tested using the wedge technique. The tests were run at a free-stream Mach number 10 and a free stream total temperature of 1,900 R. The wedge angle was varied to provide test conditions which were representative of those expected during launch. Author
