Energy and momentum analysis of the deployment dynamics of nets in space
In this paper, the deployment dynamics of nets in space is investigated through a combination of analysis and numerical simulations. The considered net is deployed by ejecting several corner masses and thanks to momentum ...
Experiments and simulation of a net closing mechanism for tether-net capture of space debris
This research addresses the design and testing of a debris containment system for use in a tether-net approach to space debris removal. The tether-net active debris removal involves the ejection of a net from a spacecraft ...
Cyber-empathic design: A data-driven framework for product design
A critical task in product design is mapping information from consumer to design space. Currently, this process largely depends on designers identifying and mapping psychological and consumer level factors to engineered ...
