Utilization of Infrared Thermography to Investigate Atmospheric Entry Aerothermodynamics of Space Vehicles at von Karman Institute
Proceedings of the 2008 International Conference on Quantitative InfraRed Thermography
Space vehicles that make an entry through the atmosphere of a planet suffer tremendously because of extreme heating of the vehicle. The design of thermal protection systems for space vehicles involves multidisciplinary topics and is a very critical stage of space vehicles. The qualification of thermal protection systems on ground is very important for a safe space flight and the protection of critical payloads. At von Karman Institute, several ground facilities are used for the characterisationdoi:10.21611/qirt.2008.07_01_11 fatcat:tf7ojkyskvf6lfnr7odi7s7zfm
