Case Study: Launch vehicle payload envelope analysis

Spacecraft experience their harshest mechanical environments during launch. Therefore, it is important to understand the impact of the different mechanical environments and generate an envelope which can be used to drive the preliminary design and verification.

Community Collaborator Richard Tait delivered a presentation at the June 2021 meetup to share the work that he has done to evaluate several launch vehicles and the tools that he developed to generate launch vehicle envelopes and Centres of Mass. His presentation is available for you to download here:
