Multilayer insulation (MLI) blankets are extensively used in spacecrafts as lightweight thermal protection systems. Heat transfer analysis of MLI is sometimes too complex to use in practical design applications. Hence, for practical engineering design purposes, it is necessary to have simpler procedures to evaluate the heat transfer rate through MLI. In this paper, four different empirical models for heat transfer are evaluated by fitting against experimentally observed heat flux through MLI blankets of various configurations, and the results are discussed.
