Optimization of low thrust trajectories with terminal aerocapture
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2003-06)
This thesis explores using a direct pseudospectral method for the solution of optimal control problems with mixed dynamics. An easy to use MATLAB optimization package known as DIDO is used to obtain the solutions. The ...
Performance and optimal placement of piezoceramic actuators for shape control of a cantilever beam
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-06)
Shape control of spaceborne antennas can provide the ability to correct for effects such as thermal distortion and manufacturing errors as well as control the shape of an antenna's radiated beam. This thesis examines the ...
