The decision on the dynamical model used to design a spacecraft’s trajectory is a fundamental choice influenced by many factors. The complexity of such a model affects the accuracy of the designed trajectory but also the difficulty of the design process. One approach to simplify this task consists of splitting the trajectory design process into...

A particular design choice in origami engineering is to use curved creases. By folding a curved-crease design, the sheets connected to the crease line have to bend, allowing for novel properties unachievable with straight-crease origami. This thesis explores the design of curved-crease-folding mechanisms with integrated planar bending actuators....

Infrasound is low-frequency inaudible sound (< 20Hz), used as a waveform verification technique for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). In this thesis, it is shown that infrasound can provide useful additional upper atmospheric observations in a region where data coverage is sparse; beyond the middle stratosphere direct...

Spaceplanes represent a new promising concept for space flight. A spaceplane is a reusable, safe, efficient and economical space transportation system that can generate lift during its atmospheric flight, analogously to an aircraft, and it is able to travel in space as a spacecraft. What makes spaceplanes so attractive is the possibility of...

Ever since the commercial growth of PV installations, soiling has been a crucial factor to decrease its performance ratio. Environmental factors such as irradiation, wind, rainfall, and back module temperature affect the yield of a system, but, in many environments, soiling of PV modules carries the largest impact. Cost effective soiling...

Chemical transport models together with emission inventories are widely used to simulate NO2 concentrations over China, but validation of the simulations with in situ measurements has been extremely limited. Here we use ground measurements obtained from the air quality monitoring network recently developed by the Ministry of Environmental...

We study the orbital motion of regolith around asteroids, lofted from the surface due to impact cratering events, to understand the displacement of material on the surface and in orbit. The cratering events could be natural such as from meteoroid impacts, or they can be induced from spacecraft activities such as in-situ sample collection....
