On the Simulation of Tether-Nets for Space Debris Capture with Vortex Dynamics
Tether-nets are one of the more promising methods for the active removal of space debris. The aim of this paper is to study the dynamics of this type of systems in space, which is still not well-known and the simulation ...
Contact Dynamics Modeling and Simulation of Tether Nets for Space-Debris Capture
(American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2016-11-23)
A proposed method for containing the growth of space debris, which jeopardizes operation of spacecraft, is the active debris removal of massive derelict spacecraft and launcher upper stages by means of tether nets. The ...
