Abstract
VATELL CORPORATION PROPOSES TO FABRICATE HEAT FLUX MICROSENSOR PROBES SIMILAR TO THOSE BEING DEVELOPED IN A CURRENT AIR FORCE SBIR PROGRAM AND APPLY OUTER PROTECTIVE LAYERS TO THE SENSORS TO ENHANCE THEIR ABRASION RESISTANCE AND HIGH TEMPERATURE RATINGS. THE CURRENT PROBES ARE DESIGNED FOR APPLICATION AT 1000 DEGREES CENTIGRADE. THE MODIFIED PROBES WILL BE DESIGNED TO BE USED IN THE PLUME OF A ROCKET MOTOR FOR A DURATION OF 3 TO 10 SECONDS. THE NOMINAL FLOW FIELD CONDITIONS ARE; MACH 3.4, GAMMA 1.2 AND STAGNATION TEMPERATURE 5800 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. THREE PROBES WITH DIFFERENT OUTER PROTECTIVE LAYERS WILL BE CONSTRUCTED, CALIBRATED, TESTED FOR THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANCE, THEN DELIVERED TO THE SPONSOR. IN A PHASE II CONTINUATION, DIRECT APPLICATION OF HEAT FLUX MICROSENSORS TO THRUST VECTOR JET VANES, TURBINE BLADES AND OTHER ROCKET COMPONENTS WILL BE EXPLORED. ?????????????????????????
