Simulation of the behavior of a payload fairing during separation

  title={Simulation of the behavior of a payload fairing during separation},
  author={Julien Servais},
The present paper describes the development of a finite element based tool at the launcher directorate of theFrench Space Agency (CNES) in order to support the ground study and testing of fairing s ... 


A continuum mechanics based four‐node shell element for general non‐linear analysis
A new four‐node (non‐flat) general quadrilateral shell element for geometric and material non‐linear analysis is presented. The element is formulated using three‐dimensional continuum mechanics
Optimal time integration parameters for elastodynamic contact problems
The generalized-α time integration scheme for treating elastodynamic contact problems is employed, and new closed-form expressions for the time integration parameters are determined in terms of user-specified high-frequency spectral radius.
Improved numerical dissipation for time integration algorithms in structural dynamics
A new family of unconditionally stable one-step methods for the direct integration of the equations of structural dynamics is introduced and is shown to possess improved algorithmic damping
