2 QARMAN: Real Flight Testbed QubeSat for Aerothermodynamic Research and Measurements on AblatioN Platform: Triple CubeSat with Ablative TPS Mission: Atmospheric Entry Technology Demonstrator, Starting Altitude of 350 km Launch: 2015 with QB50 Network Why a Re-Entry “CubeSat”? → Standardized small platform eliminates the only drawback: High Costs → Standard launch adaptors leading to highly flexible launch opportunities → If successful, it will be an affordable test platform for ablators, ceramics, sensors, trajectories, in-flight demonstrations, de- orbiting systems etc. 2

4 VKI Plasmatron 4 Stagnation Point Heating by Fay&Riddell, 1958 Local Heat Transfer Simulation Thermo-chemical equilibrium at stagnation point: → Subsonic plasma Full simulation of stagnation region

5 5 Velocity Gradient, β, Duplication β Definition differs in Subsonic and Hypersonic due to BL model Unique to Trajectory and Vehicle Geometry QARMAN Stagnation Line at 50 km Stagnation Line at Plasmatron

6 6 Velocity Gradient, β, Duplication Conventional Method: Effective Radius Modified Newtonian Theory Spherical BodiesBlunt Bodies… ? Ref: Lees1957

7 7 Velocity Gradient of Blunt Bodies Boison & Curtiss 1958  Geometries having bluntness parameter x*/r* less than 0.25 no longer obey MNT! x*/r* Velocity Gradient, β, Duplication

8 8 Iterative Approach for Test Model Geometry Determination 1- Pick a β 2- Determine the Reff Hypersonic (i.e MNT) 3- Pass from Reff Hypersonic to Subsonic by matching the heat flux equation 1- Take the ICP Computation and calculate NDPs 2- Momentum equation provides the Reff Subsonic for ground facility Extract R model Velocity Gradient, β, 66 km Rm= km Rm=94 mm
