Abstract

This paper presents a 1 m long self-deployable boom that could be folded around a spacecraft. Previously developed simulation techniques are used to analyze this two-hinge boom, made from two-ply plain weave carbon fiber laminate. A stress-resultant based failure criterion is used to study safety of the structure during both stowage and dynamic deployment. A safe design that latches without any overshoot is selected and validated by a dynamic deployment experiment.
