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 ...
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 ...
