Abstract : A thermal conductance apparatus has been designed, developed, and fabricated. The primary objective of this apparatus is to test honeycomb structures at elevated temperatures. A secondary objective is to test super-alloys, ceramics, and cermets. Operating conditions are as follows: Sample Temperature: 3000 F approx 300 F; Heat Flux: 20,000 - 1000 Btu/hr sq. ft; Environment: Air, argon, 10 to the minus 5th power mm Hg vacuum; Sample Size: 12 in. x 12 in. x 3/8 in. to 2-1/2 in.; and Accuracy: 1800 F: ! 5%; 3000 F: ! 10%.
