    Space Structures I - Development and Verification (Space Vehicles and Components)


    The topics addressed in this session cover the aspects of the development and verification of space vehicle structures (e.g. pressurized propellant tanks, non-pressurized structures of space vehicles, control surfaces) and their components (e.g. fluidic equipment and propulsive lines). The aspects of development, verification and qualification concern: • Thermo-Mechanical loads and environment • New structural concepts (e.g. multi-functional structures, design concepts for reusability) • Structure design and verification (stiffness, strength, static and dynamic stability, damage tolerance, reusability) • Structure optimization • Materials • Static and dynamic ground testing • Exploitation of flight measurements and in-orbit testing • Lessons learned related to space vehicle structures and components development, verification and qualification
