Abstract

The experience of using space apparatus type Shuttle testifies the unreliability of an applied design of a thermostable cover for flying apparatus made of separate tiles. To prevent burning through corps at branch and loss of separate heat-resistant termostable tiles when descending to earth from space, the technological idea of a continuous thermostable heat-resistant composite cover of flying apparatus for protection against dangerous effects of flame when landing on earth was introduced. The study also offers the idea of transformation of separate thermostable tiles in a continuous covering.
