Numerical Simulation for Thermal Shock Resistance of Thermal Protection Materials under Temperature Rising
Due to the complexity of service environment of thermal protection system on the aerocraft, the thermal shock resistance (TSR) of ultra-high-temperature ceramics (UHTCs), which are used as thermal protection materials, is no longer the material itself’s. Based on the restrictions of current experiments and the lack of theories, hafnium diboride (HfB2) is used to study the effects of the external constraint conditions and different thermal environment on the TSR of the UHTC in detail. The effects of different initial temperature, different external constraint conditions, and temperature rising rate on the TSR of the UHTCs through numerical simulation are discussed in detail in this study. This study can provide a more intuitively visual understanding of the evolution of the TSR of UHTCs during actual causative conditions.
