Computational framework for simulating the deformation and fracture response of oligocrystalline shape memory alloys (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)Shape memory alloys (SMAs) are a class of metallic materials that can recover their original shapes when heated above a certain temperature. Unique features including the superelasticity and shape memory effect have made ...
Survivability in Mars transit architectures : analysis framework for failure contingency strategies (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)Ambitious goals for exploring Mars in the coming decades will push human spaceflight into new territory in duration, distance and isolation. In this regime, loss of system integrity due to some failure becomes especially ...
