Overview

The first comprehensive reference on the design, analysis, and application of space vehicle mechanisms

Space Vehicle Mechanisms: Elements of Successful Design brings together accumulated industry experience in the design, analysis, and application of the mechanical systems used during space flight. More than thirty experts from a variety of related specialties and subspecialties share their insights, technical expertise, and in-depth knowledge on an enormous variety of topics, including:
* Stainless steel, beryllium, and other widely used materials
* Bearings
* Lubricants and component lubrication
* Release devices
* Motors
* Optical encoders
* Resolvers
* Signal and power transfer devices
* Deployment devices
* Thermal design
* Radiation and survivability
* Electrical interfaces
* Reliability

Space Vehicle Mechanisms is an indispensable resource for engineers involved in the design and analysis of mechanical assemblies used in space flight, and a valuable reference for space systems engineers, mission planners, and control systems engineers. It is also an excellent text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses in astronautical and mechanical engineering.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A resource for engineers who design and analyze mechanical assemblies to be used where the service stations are very far apart and replacement parts could take longer to get than the available oxygen supply allows. Specialists in various fields discuss widely used materials, bearings, lubricants and component lubrication, release devices, motors, optical encoders, resolvers, signal and power transfer devices, deployment devices, thermal design, radiation and survivability, electrical interfaces, reliability, and other topics. In the tradition of spacecraft, the print is quite small to compact as much as possible into a small space. The collection is also suitable as a text for an upper-level or graduate course in astronautical or mechanical engineering. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
