Mathematical models and results of mathematical simulation of heat transfer modes for mesh reflectors of mirror space antennas are considered, which can be used for substantiating conditions and choosing regimes of ground thermal tests. Techniques are presented for determination of optical properties and specific heat of metallic mesh sheets for radio-engineering purposes.
