Ablatives are very often used in the Thermal Protection System of re-entry spacecraft. Their thermal conductivity will play an important role in determining the temperatures of components and payloads during the on-orbit and re-entry phases on the mission. A series of calorimetric tests were conducted on these materials to ascertain their thermal conductivity. A description of the experiments and the results of analyses of the experimental temperature data from the ablatives are presented infatcat:x72r7equq5aprck6atop5x4upa
