This paper presents the stress and thermal analysis on the CubeSat structure to study the survivability of the CubeSat during the launching process or operating condition at the orbit is presented. Various design of mechanical structures were analyzed to determine the best design for different mission requirements. Analysis on the temperature of the batteries will be conducted as it is one of the most critical components that must operate in the required temperature to avoid failure of the… 
Thermal Simulation of a CubeSat
The ultimate goal is to identify, for a given Bio-cubesat orbit, the external coating materials and attitude control law, during the Sun exposure, that limit the temperature fluctuation within an admissible range.
Thermal Analysis of a 3U-Cubesat, a Case Study of Pakal Satellite
The current study presents the thermal control design of the 3U Cubesat “Pakal” from “Misión Colibrí”. As part of the design requirements, a thermal analysis was carried out to study the effects of
Thermal modeling of CIIIASat nanosatellite: A tool for thermal barrier coating selection
The effect of Thermal Barrier Coatings and Orbital Elements and their impact in the internal temperature of a CubeSAT type nanosatellite (named CIIIASat) were evaluated and the own developed numerical code presented a good agreement with the FDM software.
