Abstract : Nine temperature functions are required in finding thermal stresses in the main body of a bicentric-ogive radome, and seven in the nosecap. They are formulated and collected in this report for future use in numerical analysis. Of these nine functions, the following are discussed, exemplified, and evaluated numerically: (1) Spanwise distribution of temperature along the outer surface of the radome; (2) Temperature distribution through the thickness of the radome wall; (3) Zonal distributions of thermal strain; (4) Thermal normal-stress resultants; (5) Thermal bending-moment resultants.
