It includes a chapter on each of the relevant major disciplines and subsystems including space systems engineering, space environment, astrodynamics, propulsion and flight mechanics, attitude determination and control, power systems, thermal control, configuration management and structures, communications, command and telemetry, data processing, embedded flight software, survuvability and reliability, integration and test, mission operations, and the initial conceptual design of a typical small spacecraft mission.

Structural Failure Analysis and Prediction Methods for Aerospace Vehicles and Structures

Author: Sook-Ying Ho
Publisher: Bentham Science Publishers
ISBN: 1608050246
Release Date: 2010-01-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book deals with structural failure (induced by mechanical, aerodynamic, acoustic and aero-thermal, loads, etc.) of modern aerospace vehicles, in particular high-speed aircraft, solid propellant rocket systems and hypersonic flight vehicles, where structural integrity, failure prediction and service life assessment are particularly challenging, due to the increasingly more demanding mission requirements and the use of non-traditional materials, such as non-metallic composites, in their construction. Prediction of the complex loading environment seen in high-speed operation and constitutive / fracture models which can adequately describe the non-linear behaviour exhibited by advanced alloys and composite materials are critical in analyzing the non-linear structural response of modern aerospace vehicles and structures. the state-of-the-art of the different structural integrity assessment and prediction methodologies (including non-destructive structural health monitoring techniques) used for the structural design, service life assessment and failure analysis of the different types of aerospace vehicles are presented. the chapters are written by experts from aerospace / defence research organizations and academia in the fields of solid mechanics, and structural mechanics and dynamics of aircraft, rocket and hypersonic systems. the book will serve as a useful reference document containing specialist knowledge on appropriate prediction methodologies for a given circumstance and experimental data acquired from multi-national collaborative programs.

Structural Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization 1

Author: Kyung K. Choi
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 038723232X
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Science

In this 2-volume set, first- and second-order design sensitivity analyses are presented for static and dynamic responses of both linear and nonlinear elastic structural systems, including elasto-plastic and frictional contact problems. The premise of the text is that a comprehensive theory of structural design sensitivity analysis for linear and nonlinear structures can be treated in a unified way. The objective is to provide a complete treatment of the theory and practical numerical methods of structural design sensitivity analysis. The text presents design sensitivity analysis theory and numerical implementation to create advanced design methodologies for mechanical systems and structural components, which will permit economical designs that are strong, stable, reliable, and have long life service. The design methodologies can be used by design engineers in the university, industry, and government to obtain optimal structural designs for ground vehicles, aricraft, space systems, ships, heavy equipment, machinery, biomedical devices, etc. Extensive numerical methods for computing design sensitivity are included in the text for practical application and software development. The numerical method allows seamless integration of CAD-FEA-DSA software tools, so that design optimization can be carried out using CAD geometric models instead of FEA models. This capaibility allows integration of CAD-CAE-CAM so that optimized designs can be manufactured effectively.Book I introduces structural design concepts that include the CAD-based design model, design parameterization, performance measures, costs, and constraints. It also discusses design sensitivity analysis of linear structural systems, and discrete and continuum design sensitivity analysis methods.

Nichtlineare Finite Element Methoden

Author: Peter Wriggers
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642568657
Release Date: 2013-03-07
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Die Anwendung der Finite-Element-Methode auf nichtlineare technische Probleme hat in den letzten Jahren - auch wegen der stark angestiegenen Rechnerleistung - erheblich zugenommen. Bei nichtlinearen numerischen Simulationen sind verschiedene Aspekte zu berücksichtigen, die das Wissen und Verstehen der theoretischen Grundlagen, der zugehörigen Elementformulierungen sowie der Algorithmen zur Lösung der nichtlinearen Gleichungen voraussetzen. Hierzu soll dieses Buch beitragen, wobei die Bandbreite nichtlinearer Finite-Element-Analysen im Bereich der Festkörpermechanik abgedeckt wird. Das Buch wendet sich an Studierende des Ingenieurwesens im Hauptstudium, an Doktoranden aber auch an praktisch tätige Ingenieure, die Hintergrundwissen im Bereich der Finite-Element-Methode erlangen möchten.

Nonlinear Analysis of Structures

Author: Muthukrishnan Sathyamoorthy
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 0849396522
Release Date: 1997-10-28
Genre: Mathematics

Nonlinear Analysis of Structures presents a complete evaluation of the nonlinear static and dynamic behavior of beams, rods, plates, trusses, frames, mechanisms, stiffened structures, sandwich plates, and shells. These elements are important components in a wide variety of structures and vehicles such as spacecraft and missiles, underwater vessels and structures, and modern housing. Today's engineers and designers must understand these elements and their behavior when they are subjected to various types of loads. Coverage includes the various types of nonlinearities, stress-strain relations and the development of nonlinear governing equations derived from nonlinear elastic theory. This complete guide includes both mathematical treatment and real-world applications, with a wealth of problems and examples to support the text. Special topics include a useful and informative chapter on nonlinear analysis of composite structures, and another on recent developments in symbolic computation. Designed for both self-study and classroom instruction, Nonlinear Analysis of Structures is also an authoritative reference for practicing engineers and scientists. One of the world's leaders in the study of nonlinear structural analysis, Professor Sathyamoorthy has made significant research contributions to the field of nonlinear mechanics for twenty-seven years. His foremost contribution to date has been the development of a unique transverse shear deformation theory for plates undergoing large amplitude vibrations and the examination of multiple mode solutions for plates. In addition to his notable research, Professor Sathyamoorthy has also developed and taught courses in the field at universities in India, Canada, and the United States.
