Full-time (part-time possible)
As part of our cooperative project between DLR and NASA, various deployable structural systems are currently being developed for future space applications. Possible applications include Solar Shades (for shading instruments), drag sails to reduce space debris, and small solar sails (propelled by sunlight). For this purpose, fundamentally new foldable and deployable bionic, areal distributed structures, similar to those of insect wings and leaves, are being developed and investigated. As part of your activity, an FE model will be expanded and compared with practical experiments to characterize the mechanical properties. For this purpose, a suitable experimental setup should be created and implemented. At a conceptual level, the generated results are then transferred into an overall structural model. Your work will provide the basis for a following deployment demonstrator to be tested in a parabolic flight campaign (2020) by DLR and NASA.
In detail, your activity will include:
