Abstract

The paper studies the behavior of Triangular Rollable and Collapsible (TRAC) booms made from ultra-thin carbon fiber, with a total flange thickness of 71 µm. Both bending and torsional behavior of the deployed booms are studied using numerical analysis and experimental testing. The coiling of the booms around hubs of large radius is also studied.
