Abstract

"The use of multi-layer insulation can result in reduced material cost, weight, or volume. A method for selecting layer materials is described. Each layer material is selected to operate at its upper temperature limit and to contribute to the overall performance of the wall. The analyses required for optimizing flat and cylindrical walls are developed. Use of the digital computer makes it feasable [sic] to select layer materials from a large group of candidates. Fortran IV programs for optimizing flat and cylindrical walls are presented, and their use is demonstrated by the solution of example problems. Methods for improving the usefulness of these programs are outlined"--Abstract, page ii.
