Abstract
VATELL WILL EXPLORE SYSTEM CONCEPTS FOR PERFORMING HEAT FLUX CALIBRATI ONS AT TEMPERATURES UP TO 1,500 DEGREES F AND FLUX LEVELS OF UP TO 1,0 00 BTU/SQFT-SEC. THREE DESIGNS WILL BE STUDIED; 1) A CONCENTRATED HIG H-INTENSITY LIGHT SYSTEM, 2) A HEATED GRAPHITE BLOCK SYSTEM, AND 3) A CONVECTION SYSTEM. EACH WILL BE ANALYZED AND MODELED BY FINITE ELEMEN T TECHNIQUES. POSSIBLE METHODS FOR SEPARATING RADIATION AND CONVECTIO N HEAT FLUX WILL BE EXPLORED. STANDARDS FOR HEAT FLUX USABLE WITH THE PROPOSED CALIBRATION SYSTEMS WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE COST AND TIME TO DEVELOP EACH SYSTEM WILL BE ESTIMATED. A FINAL REPORT CONTAINING ALL DATA AND A RECOMMENDATION FOR THE SYSTEM TO BE DEVELOPED IN A PHASE I I CONTINUATION WILL BE WRITTEN AND SUBMITTED TO THE SPONSOR.
