Abstract
A STUDY IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A FIRST-ORDER MODEL FOR ASSESSING COUPLED ABLATION/EROSION RESPONSE OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS USED FOR NOSETIPS AND HEATSHIELDS ON VARIOUS VEHICLES. THIS MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED FROM AVAILABLE EROSION DATA AND SELECTED SINGLE IMPACT EROSION DATA OBTAINED ON VIRGIN AND CHARRED MATERIALS. UNCERTAINTY BOUNDS FOR VARIOUS MATERIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCE VARIABLES WILL BE ESTABLISHED AND THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO VEHICLE PERFORMANCE ASSESSED. A FOLLOW-ON PROGRAM WILL BE FORMULATED TO PROVIDE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPREHENSIVE COUPLED ABLATION/EROSION MODEL ON SELECTED STATE OF THE ART AND ADVANCED MATERIALS FOR THREAT VEHICLES.
