Dynamic and Impact Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles using ABAQUS/Explicit2
Aerospace Vehicles are Complex Systems With NumerousDifferent Analyses that Need to Be Performed
Aerospace systems are exposed to various loading conditions that all need to befully analyzed
 –Static, dynamic, thermal, acoustic, operational
Typical satellite analyses include:
 –Dynamic analysis for shipping, launch, and operation –Detailed component stress and margin calculations –Mechanism analysis for deployment of solar panels and reflector  –Thermal analysis for in-orbit operation
These analyses are typically performed in the linear domain
 –Often the modal domain for dynamic problems
But, there are some load cases that cannot be analyzed linearly…

Dynamic and Impact Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles using ABAQUS/Explicit3
Impact is a Highly Nonlinear, Dynamic Event
Example problem: Satellite impact with ground
Engineering Challenges
Complicated, nonlinear, dynamic event withmany contact regions and damage / failure
Goals of analysis
Determine forces on satellite caused byimpact
Determine if components / joints failedand correlate to actual results
Determine peak component accelerations
