Designing for the harsh temperature gradients of space
Published on June 26, 2020
Satellites are exposed to extreme temperature variations: the temperature of the side that is exposed to the sun can be hundreds of degrees higher than the temperature of the side that faces the darkness of space.
In this nTop Live, Jonathan Harris, Lead Application Engineer at nTop, explains how to tackle the challenges posed by such steep temperature gradients—and the resulting variable material properties—using the principles of field-driven design.
Watch and learn how to:
- Link temperature-dependent material properties to simulations
- Design graded-material models based on multiphysics simulations
- Create a more accurate simulation model by synthesizing multiple data sources
