  3. 3. Development and Evaluation of a New Configuration of a Landing Impact Protection System for Stratospheric Balloon Gondolas

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Fredrik Haider; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis presents analyses of the landing impact of stratospheric balloon gondolas and two of the current systems used for protecting a gondola during landing. From the analyses a new system for sizing the protecting crashpads was developed. The new system provides better protection compared to the old method for sizing the crashpads. READ MORE
