Analysis, Design, and Testing of Heat-Short-Isolation Components for High-Performance Insulation Systems
To formulate criteria and analyses for the prediction of heat flux through full-scale tank supports and plumbing.
To conduct experiments to verify the validity of these analyses.
To develop heat-isolation components and optimum piping configurations for use in flight tankage.
To compare the relative thermal efficiency of point tank supports as opposed to continuous-band supports.
