Summary

Thermal conductivity for a family of fibrous, refractory composite insulations are characterized through the use of an engineering model and arc-jet data. The model defines the composite as a uniform pore material using measured physical and mechanical properties. Efficiency parameters assigned to the solid and radiation conduction terms in the thermal conductivity equation were found to be dependent only on solid volume fraction and porosity.
