  1. 1. Spacecraft dynamic analysis and correlation with test results : Shock environment analysis of LISA Pathfinder at VESTA test bed

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Beata Iwona Kunicka; [2017]
    Keywords : FEA FEM; finite element analysis; finite element method; mechanical analysis; structural analysis; dynamic analysis; computational dynamic analysis of structures; shock analysis; shock environment; shock test; shock test campaign; spacecraft dynamic analysis; MSC Nastran; MSC Patran; Dynaworks; Shock Response Spectrum; SRS; space engineering; space science and technology; mechanical engineering; structural engineering; analysis optimisation; analysis parametrisation; mechanical wave propagation; shock propagation; damping; hysteretic damping; viscous damping; structural damping;

    Abstract : The particular study case in this thesis is the shock test performed on the LISA Pathfinder satellite conducted in a laboratory environment on a dedicated test bed: Vega Shock Test Apparatus (VESTA). This test is considered fully representative to study shock levels produced by fairing jettisoning event at Vega Launcher Vehicle, which induces high shock loads towards the satellite. READ MORE

  2. 2. Case Studies on Fractal and Topological Analyses of Geographic Features Regarding Scale Issues

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Samhällsbyggnad, GIS

    Author : Zheng Ren; [2017]
    Keywords : scale; fractal geometry; big data; topological analyses;

    Abstract : Scale is an essential notion in geography and geographic information science (GIScience). However, the complex concepts of scale and traditional Euclidean geometric thinking have created tremendous confusion and uncertainty. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling Control Traffic in Distributed Software Defined Networks

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektro- och systemteknik (EES)

    Author : Muhammd Zeshan Naseer; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Software defined networks (SDNs) have evolved as novel network architecture in modern networking. However, to allow SDN scale for several thousand switches, the control architecture needs to be distributed, with control traffic between switches and controllers, as well as among the controllers.

  4. 4. A Comparison Study on Head/tail Breaks and Topfer’s Method for Model-based Map Generalization on Geographic Features in Country and City Levels

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för Industriell utveckling, IT och Samhällsbyggnad

    Author : Yue Lin; [2015]
    Keywords : map generalization; head tail breaks; Topfer’s selection rule; scaling property;

    Abstract : Map generalization is a traditional cartographical issue which should be particularly considered in today’sinformation age. The aim of this study is to find some characteristics about head/tail breaks which worksas generalization method compared with the well known Topfer’s method. READ MORE

  5. 5. Examining the New Kind of Beauty Using the Human Being as a Measuring Instrument

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för Industriell utveckling, IT och Samhällsbyggnad

    Author : Jou-Hsuan Wu; [2015]
    Keywords : Cartography; scaling; head tail breaks; the theory of centers; fractals; and the mirror-of-the-self test;

    Abstract : A map combines scientific facts with aesthetic perceptions. This study argues that scaling is universal in mapping reality and evoking a sense of beauty. Scaling laws are used to reveal the underlying structures and dynamics of spatial features. Complex systems, such as living cities involve various interacting entities at all scales. READ MORE
