Abstract:

The need to accurately determine the thermochemical properties of carbon properties of carbon above 4000 deg K, including its melt temperature, is being addressed by an approach which seeks to determine these equilibrium properties from nonequilibrium but steady-state carbon ablation data. In order to do this, a non-linear model of the carbon nonequilirbium phase change process induced by high thermal radiation environments has been developed.
