Effectiveness of various protective coverings on magnesium fins at Mach number 2.0 and stagnation temperatures up to 3,600 degrees R
Description: Report presenting eight thin magnesium fins, seven with the leading edges swept back 17 degrees and one with the leading edge swept back 45 degrees, in the preflight high-temperature jet. The investigation was made to determine the effectiveness of various protective coverings designed to alleviate aerodynamic-heating effects and intended for application on the first stage of rocket-propelled multistage hypersonic models.
