### Identification of aerothermal heating for thermal protection systems taking into account the thermal resistance between layers

#### Abstract

In this paper the aerothermal heating of a reusable launch vehicle is reconstructed on the basis of temperature measurements taken in the thermal protection system of this vehicle. The discussed integrated thermal protection system is composed of three layers. Mathematical model, describing the problem, takes into account the dependence on temperature of the material parameters as well as the thermal resistances occurring in the contact zones of the layers, which is a novelty in the proposed approach. For solving the direct problem, the implicit scheme of the finite difference method is applied. Next, by using the solution of the direct problem, the Tikhonov functional is created, which describes the error of the current approximate solution. Whereas for determining the solution of the inverse problem the Levenberg-Marquardt method, modified and adapted to the Tikhonov functional, is used. The paper presents the mathematical model of the problem and the method of solution together with the selected examples illustrating its exactness and stability. In order to better examination of the solution method some various values of parameters are taken in the demonstrated examples.
