Abstract : Six samples were tested in the CML 1.5-inch air arc on 10 and 14 October 1958. All samples were positioned at 4-1/2 inches above the top electrode and were subjected to a step heat flux rate (nonablating value) or 1950 BTU/sq ft 2-sec for a nominal period of 30 seconds. Data shown are (1) heat flux rate, (2) plasma characteristics, (3) time of exposure, (4) sample weights before and after test, (5) percentage weight loss, (6) photographs of samples before and after test, (7) sample silhouettes before and after test. Remarks are appended where additional information was deemed advisable. (Author)
