Cryogenic Insulation Development
Modern technology in military and commercial applications of cryogenic liquids requires low-loss or no-loss storage and transportation systems. The cryogenic engineer is faced with the necessity of designing cryogenic liquids systems utilizing new concepts in construction, supports, and insulation. To meet these requirements, an investigation of the factors affecting the heat transport through insulation was undertaken.
