Standard Test Method for Heat of Ablation
|Publication Date:||29 August 1972|
1.1 This test method covers determination of the heat of ablation of materials subjected to thermal environments requiring the use of ablation as an energy dissipation process. Three concepts of the property are described and defined: cold wall, effective, and thermochemical heat of ablation.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
