"The desired result of this paper is to determine what effect the physical and thermal properties of a material have on the ability of that material to act as an ablation heat shield. On the basis of their physical properties, five materials, nickel, beryllium, fused quartz, teflon, and phenolic-nylon, were chosen as examples.
The tools used for this study are heat transfer equations involving a change in material phase. The resulting criteria may be assumed applicable to any material exhibiting one of the four types of ablation processes"--Abstract, page 2.
