The deformation characteristics of silica fabric with a thermal barrier coating, which is used for the production of the ballute-type aerobrake of a descent module, are estimated. A rubberized fabric strip is subjected to uniaxial tensile tests to failure. Various finite-element simulation approaches to the deformation of the fabric are considered.
