Summary

 

Orbital Mechanics - AERO97079

Aims

This module presents the application of orbital mechanics and rigid body dynamics to a wide range of problems in non-atmospheric flight, along with analytical and numerical solutions to a wide range of problems in path planning and path optimisation such as fuel- or time-optimal trajectories. Spacecraft relative motion, stability and control are also analysed.

Aerospace Vehicle Design - AERO60002

Aims

The design of aerospace vehicles is a complex, multidisciplinary endeavour. This module offers you an opportunity to integrate and apply your prior knowledge and analytical skills to the design of an aircraft of conventional architecture, starting from only a simple set of operational requirements, while introducing them to the multi-stage approach and methods typically employed by vehicle design teams.
