Fall 2005 A ERSP 309 A STRONAUTICS Instructor: Dr. Robert G. Melton TA: Matt Edgar TI: Jeremie Albert 229 Hammond Bldg. 814-865-1185 [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Office Hours : 1:00-3:00 MWF 10:30-12 TR 2:30-3:30 TR Or by appointment Course website: www.courses.psu.edu/aersp/aersp309_r81 Course Objectives : After completing this course, students will be able to 1.) use three-dimensional kinematics to describe relative orientations of different coordinate systems and their rates of change, and apply these to problems in aerospace vehicle motion, 2.) apply basic principles of three-dimensional dynamics to solve problems in orbital mechanics, rigid body motion, and satellite attitude dynamics, 3.) apply the rocket equation to estimate propellant masses needed for orbital maneuvers and transfers, 4.) apply principles of radiative heat transfer to estimate the internal temperature of a satellite, and 5.) demonstrate a rudimentary working knowledge of the space environment and its interactions with spacecraft.
