Abstract

Heat that enters a propellant tank has two principal routes. One is the tank-wall insulation through which the heat is radiated, and the other is the tank supports and plumbing which conduct heat into the tank. The latter is called a heat short and is the subject of this paper. The objectives of the development program described in this paper were as follows:
  1. 1.

    To formulate criteria and analyses for the prediction of heat flux through full-scale tank supports and plumbing.

     
  2. 2.

    To conduct experiments to verify the validity of these analyses.

     
  3. 3.

    To develop heat-isolation components and optimum piping configurations for use in flight tankage.

     
  4. 4.

    To compare the relative thermal efficiency of point tank supports as opposed to continuous-band supports.
