Abstract

An analytical and experimental study was conducted to determine the suitability of several commercial plastic foams for insulating liquid-hydrogen-fueled missiles. The laboratory values of thermal conductivity of many of the low-density plastic foams indicate that they would be satisfactory for mission times approaching several hours duration. In actual practice, however, these values often prove difficult to obtain for any sustained length of time and with a reasonable degree of confidence.
