About this product
- DescriptionSpace Vehicle Dynamics and Control provides a solid foundation in mathematics modelling analysis and control of space vehicles. More than 200 figures, photographs and tables are featured in detailed sections covering the fundamentals of orbital, attitude and structural motions of space vehicles. The textbook highlights a range of orbital maeuvring issues: orbital transfer, rendezvous, orbit control and halo orbit determination. Rotational maeuvre and attitude control of rigid spacecraft under the influence of reaction jet firings, internal energy dissipation and robotic manipulators in the presence of structural modelling uncertainties are also discussed. At the end of each chapter, Dr. Wie includes a helpful list of references for graduate students and working professionals studying spacecraft design. Space Vehicle Dynamics and Control requires a thorough kwledge of vector and matrix algebra, calculus, ordinary differential equations, linear system dynamics and engineering mechanics. Some familiarity with structural dynamics and partial differential equations is presumed, and because some problems may require the use of software for the analysis control design and numerical simulation, readers should have access to computational software (ie MATLAB) on a personal computer.
- Author BiographyBong Wie graduated with honors from the Seoul National Universit's aerospace engineering program in 1975. He holds both an M.S. (1978) and Ph.D. (1981) in aeronautics and astronautics from Stanford University. For four years after graduating from Stanford, Dr Wie worked in the private sector as a control systems engineer for the ford Aerospace Corporation in Palo Alto, Calif, but returned to academia in 1985 as an assistant professor at the University of Texas. In 1989, he moved to Arizona State University as an associate professor in the school's mechanical and aerospace engineering department before accepting a full professorship in 1992. He has consulted for a number of aerospace and engineering corporations, and traveled to Korea and Japan for visiting professorships. Among his affiliations, Dr. Wie is an AIAAA Fellow, a senior member of the American Astronautical Society (AAS), and a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
