Abstract : The thermal regime of a 12-inch diameter liquid rocket motor, while carried by F4B and A6A aircraft, is investigated. Aerodynamic heating is measured during carriage by the F4B aircraft. Aerodynamic cooling is investigated during flights of up to 4 1/2 hours on A6A aircraft. The report includes figures which give the heating and cooling profiles, and tables. (Author)
