Giorgio Fasano, János D. Pintér, "Space Engineering: Modeling and Optimization with Case Studies"
English | 2016 | ISBN: 3319415069 | PDF | pages: 492 | 8.3 mb

This book presents a selection of advanced case studies that cover a substantial range of issues and real-world challenges and applications in space engineering. Vital mathematical modeling, optimization methodologies and numerical solution aspects of each application case study are presented in detail, with discussions of a range of advanced model development and solution techniques and tools.
Space engineering challenges are discussed in the following contexts:

•Advanced Space Vehicle Design
•Computation of Optimal Low Thrust Transfers
•Indirect Optimization of Spacecraft Trajectories
•Resource-Constrained Scheduling,
•Packing Problems in Space
•Design of Complex Interplanetary Trajectories
•Satellite Constellation Image Acquisition
•Re-entry Test Vehicle Configuration Selection
•Collision Risk Assessment on Perturbed Orbits
•Optimal Robust Design of Hybrid Rocket Engines
•Nonlinear Regression Analysis in Space Engineering
•Regression-Based Sensitivity Analysis and Robust Design
•Low-Thrust Multi-Revolution Orbit Transfers
•Modeling and Optimization of Balance Layout Problems
•Pilot-Induced Oscillations Alleviation
•Modeling and Optimization of Hybrid Transfers to Near-Earth Objects
•Probabilistic Safety Analysis of the Collision Between Space Debris and Satellite
•Flatness-based Low-thrust Trajectory Optimization for Spacecraft Proximity Operations
The contributing authors are expert researchers and practitioners in either the space engineering and/or in the applied optimization fields. Researchers and practitioners working in various applied aspects of space engineering will find this book practical and informative. Academics, graduate and post-graduate students in aerospace engineering, applied mathematics, operations research, optimization, and optimal control, will find this book useful.
