Spacecraft design optimisation for demise and survivability

Mirko Trisolini, Hugh G. Lewis, Camilla Colombo
2018 Aerospace Science and Technology  
Still, a spacecraft designed to demise has to survive the debris-populated space environment for many years.  ...  Given the competing nature of the demisability and the survivability, a multi-objective optimisation framework was developed, with the aim to identify trade-off solutions for the preliminary design of  ...  Thanks also to the European Space Agency for sponsoring the attendance to the 2016 IAC under the International Space Education Board participation programme.  ...

Constrained optimisation of preliminary spacecraft configurations under the design-for-demise paradigm [article]

Mirko Trisolini and Hugh G. Lewis and Camilla Colombo
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Through the design-for-demise paradigm, this additional cost and complexity can be removed as the spacecraft is directly compliant with the casualty risk regulations.  ...  The framework's objective is to find preliminary design solutions considering the competing nature of the demisability and the survivability of a spacecraft since the early stages of the mission design  ...  It was also supported by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 679086 -COMPASS)  ...

Re-entry analysis of critical components and materials for design-for-demise techniques

Seong-Hyeon Park, Stefano Mischler, Pénélope Leyland
2021 Advances in Space Research  
To reduce the casualty area of the surviving fragments, design-for-demise techniques have been proposed.  ...  From the point of view of the design-for-demise techniques, it is significant to identify and investigate the critical components that are directly related to the casualty risk.  ...  Intentionally designing spacecraft to meet the casualty risk constraint is known as design-for-demise (Kärräng et al., 2019) .  ...
