Abstract
TRANSPIRATION COOLED NOSETIPS (TCNTS) FOR ICBM REENTRY VEHICLES OFFER SHAPE STABILITY, ENHANCED THERMAL/EROSION PERFORMANCE AND POTENTIAL DESIGN SOLUTIONS FOR HIGH STRENGTH AND SMALL RADIUS NOSETIPS. CURRENT TCNT DESIGN AND FABRICATION PROCESSES ARE TIME-CONSUMING AND EXPENSIVE, HAMPERING RESEARCH EFFORTS AND INHIBITING APPLICATION OF TCNTS TO REENTRY SYSTEMS. ADVANCED DESIGN AND FABRICATION METHODS WILL BE INVESTIGATED IN THIS PROGRAM TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS. EMERGING CAD/CAM TECHNOLOGIES AND INNOVATIVE DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE EXPLOITED TO REDUCE DESIGN/FABRICATION TIME AND COSTS, AND INCREASE OVERALL SYSTEM RELIABILITY. KEY ELEMENTS OF THE PROPOSED INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES WILL BE VERIFIED THROUGH SUBSCALE FABRICATION AND TEST.
