    • Three-Dimensional High-Fidelity Dynamic Modeling of Tether Transportation System with Multiple Climbers 

      Zhu, Zheng H.; Li, Gangqiang; Shi, Gefei (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2019-03-04)
      This paper studies the dynamics of a tether transportation system by the nodal position finite element method in the framework of an arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian description. Material coordinate is introduced as a state ...
    • Flight Dynamics and Control Strategy of Electric Solar Wind Sails 

      Zhu, Zheng H.; Li, Gangqiang; Du, Chonggang (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2019-11-27)
      This paper studies the flight dynamics and control strategy for electric solar wind sails based on the nodal position finite element method, where the coupling effects between tether dynamics and the electrical field are ...
