Development of a smart and durable joint for space applications
Durability & Functional materials - Interfaces/Interphases: Ageing and Adaptability (IIAA)
- This thesis is about the development of a bio inspired joint for space applications. The objectives of this project are the following: Design a monolithic mechanism using 3D printing
- Demonstrate its resistance to changing temperatures, void and UV radiation
- Demonstrate its fatigue resistance to a million cycles on a maximum angular range.
