Abstract

Published physical properties of phenolic impregnated carbon ablator (PICA) are compiled, and the composition of the pyrolysis gases that form at high temperatures internal to a heatshield is investigated. A link between the composition of the solid resin, and the composition of the pyrolysis gases created is provided. This link, combined with a detailed investigation into a reacting pyrolysis gas mixture, allows a consistent, and thorough description of many of the physical phenomena occurring in a PICA heatshield, and their implications, to be presented.
