Heat Flux Measurements in Hypersonic Environments

Measurement of heat flux on a hypersonic test article (ground or flight) poses many challenges. From determining the best location for the measurements, ensuring survivability, and increasing reliability to test article integration with minimal disturbance to the vehicle’s thermal protection system (TPS) and the sensor’s performance.

About this Webinar

In this webinar, we overview the numerous challenges of measuring heat flux in a hypersonic vehicle/test article. A simple “roadmap,” with lessons learned, is presented for implementing these sensors in the hypersonic environment. The roadmap shows how mechanical, thermal, and fluid analysis simulation technology compresses the design and testing processes. Simulation delivers more profound insight into the physical processes and leads to design changes that avoid costly failures.
