Abstract:

This thesis discusses the thermal and mechanical properties of subliming, melting, charring, and intumescent ablative materials. The use of intumescent ablators as thermal protection in low heat flux environments is emphasized. Models for analysis of transient ablation are discussed. Naval applications of intumescent ablators are examined. Author
