Article Preview

Various materials are used to achieve a good “Thermal Control System” (TCS) of spacecraft. The performance of the TCS totally depends upon the thermal behaviour of the materials used in the elements of TCS. The measurements of the thermal properties of materials are fundamental for better understanding of the thermal design. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the most widely used thermal technique for obtaining a wealth of information about a material, especially for the specific heat measurement of a material. Stir casting technique was used to fabricate the 7075 aluminum alloy and 7075 Al / SiCp composites. The heat flow response is recorded as a function of actual sample temperature range from -1000 C to 4000 C. Specific heat characteristics of 7075 Al reinforced with different volume fraction of silicon carbide composites fabricated by stir casting method was analyzed.
