The application of transpiration cooling as a thermal protection system for hypersonic vehicles

Abstract:

This thesis investigates the application of transpiration cooling to reduce surface heat transfer on hypersonic vehicles. Such vehicles experience high peak heat fluxes and time-integrated heat loads throughout the ascent, re-entry, and cruise phases. The most significant heat fluxes occur at the stagnation point of sharp leading edges, regions of laminar-turbulent transition, or shock-wave boundary layer interactions. Whilst previous and current hypersonic vehicles employ ablation for man...
