Abstract : Methods of dynamic response analysis for space vehicle temperature control systems are described, including mathematical equations, tables, graphs, and an example analysis. A procedure for design of systems, including selection of control methods, coolants, and components and design analysis, is also included. Also included is a continuation of some topics from Part I and a description of special temperature control problems associated with precision temperature control, cryogenic cooling and reentry. Conclusions and recommendations are included to show areas which need investigation and further study. (Author)
