Modern approaches to the creation of thermally loaded space rocket composite structures
S Reznik, Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Russia

Composite materials have a unique combination of physical properties enabling structures for continuous operation in vacuum at extremely low temperatures, in high-temperature chemically active flows and at high pressures, under corpuscular radiation. Interdisciplinary problems related to the design and testing of demanding rocket and space composite structures are considered.

The focus of attention is on space antennas, reusable space vehicles, and large volume space structures. Results of theoretical and experimental research revealing the modern approach to the creation of complex technical objects are presented.
