Structures in space environments, whether operating in orbit or on the extraplanetary surfaces are exposed to a wide range of temperature variations. The severity of the temperature effect has been demonstrated and underlined by the failure of several space structures in fulfilling their intended missions in the past. It has been realized that the extreme temperature gradient possible in a structure subjected to space environment gives a host of structural problems that are not normally found in the terrestri…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
