For the following simple analysis it is assumed t h a t t h e continuum approach is valid (for a general introduction t o energy t r a n s p o r t by thermal radiation see, e. , Eckert and Drake [14], Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot [15]). Slip effects as well as high-temperature real-gas effects are not regarded.

G. because of a material constraint): the wall-heat flux q^j is the consequence of the balance of qg^j and qrad at the prescribed T^^. 5. The wall-heat flux q^ is prescribed (e. g. in order to get available a certain amount of heat in a heat exchanger): the wall temperature T^j^ is a consequence of the balance of all three heat fluxes. 0 km/s. At this condition, typical of re-entry flight from low earth orbit, radiation emission and absorption processes of heat in the air-stream past the vehicle can be neglected.

The appropriateness of the radiation-adiabatic surface as approximation of reality is also supported by these results, at least for RV-type flight vehicles with a thermal protection system like the Space Shuttle has. 85. 74, we see a rather good agreement 40 3 The Thermal State of the Surface 1800 p. 56 km Tw[K] 1100 p j ; ; ^ ^ . a = 42° 400 1400 900 FCX o M,. 9^ 400 1400 M,. 9 Fig. 3.
