Auxetic shape memory alloy cellular structures for deployable satellite antennas: design, manufacture and testing
Department of Aerospace Engineering, University of
2 ESA-ESTEC, Noordwijk, HOL
We describe the production development and experimental tests related to an hybrid honeycomb-truss made of shape memory alloy (Ni48Ti46Cu6), and used as a demonstrator for a deployable antenna in deep-space missions. Specific emphasis is placed on the modal analysis techniques used to test the lightweight SMA structure.
