TPS Failure Modes and Margins, and Architectural Concepts to Maximize Entry Reliability

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

TPS Failure Modes and Margins, and Architectural Concepts to Maximize Entry Reliability
This study will generate data to be used in a Risk Informed Decision Making (RIDM) framework that will evaluate the current MSR EEV baseline aeroshell TPS material, and potential 3D woven TPS alternatives. The RIDM process and other key metrics will guide the ranking and selection between potential architectures and identify opportunities for design improvements that promote system reliability. More »
