Abstract : The separation of the interface heat exchanger must coincide with the Gemini B/MOL separation. The heat transfer compound used between the two halves of the interface heat exchanger has exhibited significant cohesive properties. Therefore, the testing reported here was conducted to determine the tensile force required to separate two 112 square inch aluminum plates which simulated the interface heat exchanger mating surfaces.
