Summary

The effect of a convectively heated environment on a family of advanced high temperature composite insulation was studied in an arc-jet to evaluate its performance as thermal-protection systems on future space vehicles. Morphology, shrinkage, and thermal-response data were obtained from blunt cones and cylinders tested at stagnation conditions in a hypersonic airstream.
