Thermal Protection Modeling presents the fundamental knowledge, applications and methods of heat transfer augmentation techniques for the current and the future of thermal protection systems. This book is mathematically and practically balanced to give the reader a complete picture of common challenges and their most appropriate solutions. It presents boundary conditions for the simulations of heat transfer and the design of combined and active thermal protection. Important application aspects of heat transfer augmentation techniques in a single-phase system are compared in a practical way with a strong modelling approach. Developed mathematical models for active and combined thermal protection systems are considered alongside various complicated factors, such as the mass entrainment from the surface, phase transformations of liquid in a porous material, rotational and vibrational motion of a body around the longitudinal axis and the effect of small periodic disturbances. This book will provide a strong understanding of the current and future state of thermal protection systems and assist the reader in their own problem solving and modelling approaches.
