"The transient temperatures were determined in a porous plate for one dimensional heat flow and one dimensional counter coolant flow. One surface of the porous plate was heated by a hot gas by convective heat transfer. A general discussion of the problem is considered and the procedure described for working all such problems dealing with transpiration cooling.

The solution of such problems is illustrated by two examples employing a ceramic plate one inch thick and cooled by a uniform flow of air in a direction counter to the flow of heat, while one surface of the ceramic plate was heated by convective heat transfer by a hot gas at 5000° F. The solution provided here is applicable to digital computer computations and was solved on the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy LGP-30 Royal McBee Digital Computer.

The results of this investigation prove very conclusively that the method of cooling is effective and can be applied to almost any high temperature problem which can allow the coolant to penetrate the surface on the hot side of the porous plate"--Abstract, page ii.
