Abstract :

In this work, a kinetic heating simulation (KHS) facility has been designed, developed and the performance estimation is carried out in Propulsion and High enthalpy lab held at Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences. The main objective of developing a KHS facility is to study the material characteristics high temperature paints at elevated temperatures. The Kinetic heating simulation facility is developed for 110 kW power rating. The current facility is designed to hold maximum of 105 Infrared lamps with each lamp having a power rating of 1kW. Ceramic lamps are used for heating the specimen. 15 lamps are placed in a bank and each bank can be controlled individually with the help of controlling unit. A total of 7 banks are used in operation of the kinetic heating simulation facility. To estimate the performance of the KHS facility K-type thermocouple are used for feedback as well as to measure temperature. The KHS also has provision for heat flux measurement. Preliminary studies are carried out to estimate the performance of KHS facility for various ranges
