DESIGN OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS FOR IMPROVED FLEXIBLE SPACECRAFT PERFORMANCE.

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Structural flexibility in future spacecraft will be significant because of stringent system performance requirements, severe disturbance environments, and size, in view of basic structural and materials limitations. Designers of these advanced spacecraft will have many technical options available to them in the general areas of materials design, structural configuration design, and control system design. The relative merits of different materials in terms of the requirements they generate for a structural control system are examined using a model of a representative antenna spacecraft.
