Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROGRAM IS TO DESIGN RAKE PROBES THAT CAN ACCURATELY MEASURE AND MAP ARC-JET EXIST PLANE FLOW QUANTITIES. THREE RAKE PROBES SHALL BE DESIGNED THAT CAN MAP OUT THE AERODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF THE TEST SECTION IN HIGH-ENTHALPY/HIGHPRESSURE ARC-JETS. THE FIRST PROBE SHALL BE A CYLINDRICAL PRESSURE/CALORIMETER RAKE THAT CAN BE SWEPT ACROSS THE TEST SECTION TO MEASURE PRESSURE, CONVECTIVE HEATING AND INFER ENTHALPY. THIS PROBE SHALL BE FABRICATED IN PHASE I. THE SECOND PROBE IS A RAKE WITH AXI-SYMMETIRIC PROBES TO CHARACTERIZE THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL FLOW BEHAVIOR OF THE TEST SECTION. THE THIRD PROBE SHALL BE USED TO INFER ENTHALPY.
