Abstract : The purpose of this program is to amplify the scarce existing information concerning those physical properties of gases which determine their thermal radiation, especially at high temperatures and pressures. The experimental approach consists in determining directly, by means of emission radiometry and spectroradiometry, the magnitude and spectral distribution of the thermal radiation. These measurements will be conducted on gases which appear as or at least are contained in the combustion products of actual combustors, e.g. rocket combustion chambers, and will extend over ranges of temperature, pressure and radiating path lengths as close as possible to the ranges encountered in practice in such combustors. This information will enable the designer to predict, with greatly improved accuracy, the radiant heat flux from the combustion gases to the walls of the combustor.
