The course is focused on astrodynamics and orbital mechanics. It deals with Keplerian and non-Keplerian trajectories, orbital maneuvring and attitude control and with computational methods in astrodynamics.
The student is expected to be familiar with basic terms of astronautics. It is recommended to take the courses on space technology previously.
- Syllabus of lectures:
Two-body problem, orbital elements, restricted three-body problem, non-Keplerian motion, stability of orbits
Tsiolkovski equation, impulsive and continuous maneuvers, Lambert?s problem, transfer trajectories, rendezvous maneuvers, formation flying, dynamics of launch and reentry of space objects
Rotation of a rigid body, disturbing torques, active and passive attitude control of body, dynamics of control
Computational methods in astrodynamics, analytical/numerical methods, precision of methods
- Syllabus of tutorials:
- Study Objective:
The aim of course is to give the student an general understanding of the mechanics of space objects.
