The pace of progress in gossamer technology has been strong since the publication of Gossamer Spacecraft: Membrane and Inflatable Structures Technology for Space Applications in 2001. Solar sails are an obvious and public evidence of this trend. But there have been many other advances as well in structures, materials, testing, and systems engineering. Recent Advances in Gossamer Spacecraft focuses on many of these, either as gossamer technology that was not sufficiently represented in the previous volume, or that has had significant growth and activity in the intervening years. The most accurate and up-to-date information has been assembled, reviewed, and presented by an outstanding group of experts.32Hibbit, Karlsson and Sorensen, Inc., aquot;No Compression or No Tension Elasticity , aquot; ABAQUS Standard User Manual, Vol. ... 41LS-DYNA, Theoretical Manual, compiled by J.
