Abstract

It is only natural that a device such as the arc plasma jet, which is capable of generating on a continuous basis an effluent which has far higher temperatures and produces higher heat fluxes than any other known technique, should get widespread use in materials testing. Test facilities utilizing the unique capabilities of the plasma jet are in extended use for many different and widely varying types of material evaluations. Among the more common of these are ablation, reentry simulation, thermal shock, thermal stress, dynamic oxidation and rocket exhaust simulation. The techniques and degree of sophistication of these evaluations range from the simplest of screening tests to highly detailed simulations of conditions which would exist in an actual application.
