Structure Design & Analysis
SpaceTech offers mechanical design and analysis as service to customers for all kind of structures with specific expertise in the area of light-weight and dimensional stable structures.
We perform structural analysis and design with focus on Carbon Fibre reinforced material and sandwich structures.
Structure design & analysis examples
- Design and analysis of SpaceTech own products as MSTTM, refocus mechanisms, solar arrays…
- Analysis of CFRP bicycle wheel
- Design and analysis various CarbonFibreReinforced components for different customers
- MGSE designs for Bepi Colombo, Swarm, FORMOSAT-5
- Spacecraft structure analysis and/or design as e.g. for Grace Follow-On and Sentinel-5 Precursor
SpaceTech's standard tools for mechanical engineering
