9781845699963: Spacecraft Thermal Control (Woodhead Publishing in Mechanical Engineering)

Thermal control systems are an essential element of spacecraft design, ensuring that all parts of the spacecraft remain within acceptable temperature ranges at all times. Spacecraft thermal control describes the fundamentals of thermal control design and reviews current thermal control technologies. The book begins with an overview of space missions and a description of the space environment, followed by coverage of the heat transfer processes relevant to the field. In the third part of the book, current thermal control technologies are described, and in the final part, design, analysis and testing techniques are reviewed.

  • Provides background on the fundamentals of heat transfer which gives the reader a better understanding of the phenomenon and the way Space Thermal Control Systems work
  • Merges the experience of the authors in teaching aerospace engineering topics with the experience as compilers of the ‘Spacecraft Thermal Control Design Data Handbook’ of the European Space Agency and the development of in orbit thermal control systems for Spanish and ESA Missions
  • The engineering approach is enhanced with a full section on Thermal Control Design, Analysis and Testing

Product Description:

Thermal control is what allows a satellite to maintain its temperature within set parameters during its lifetime. It covers a very wide temperature range, from the cryogenic level (-270 degrees C) to high-temperature thermal protection systems (more than 2000 degrees C).

The authors, with their extensive experience in aerospace engineering, provide detailed chapters on how to design a Space Thermal Control System comprehensively. They begin with an overview of the basic and specific concepts of a space mission, its development phases, the environment it must withstand, the orbits and trajectories needed to accomplish the mission and the subsystems that help to achieve this, before moving on to explain the fundamentals of heat transfer.  The concluding two sections focus on the numerous technologies that can be employed in the thermal control subsystem and the formal aspects of spacecraft development, specifically the design, analysis and testing.

About the Author:

Professor Jose Meseguer is Full Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain and Director of the Instituto Universitario de Microgravedad "Ignacio Da Riva" (IDR/UPM), an institute for aerospace research and development at UPM.

Dr. Isabel Perez-Grande is Associate Professor of Thermodynamics at UPM, and the Head of the Thermal Control Division of IDR/UPM. She was responsible for the thermal control design and testing of the satellite UPM-Sat 1 and the thermal control of the baloon-borne solar telescope SUNRISE. Currently, she is charge of the thermal control of the instrument PHI of the European Space Agency (ESA) mission "Solar Orbiter".

Professor Angel Sanz-Andres is Full Professor of Aerospace Engineering at UPM and was the technical director of the satellite UPM-Sat 1. He has been an adviser in thermal and structural design for the development of several scientific space instruments and was a member of the European Space Agency (ESA)'s Physical Science Working Group (PSWG).
