    • Analytical study of NASA’s Mars mission architecture 

      Cardona Orfila, Pau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      In these days it seems that, in another context, a new space race has began withthe objective of reaching Mars with humans on board for the first time. Exempli-fied by various agencies and private companies’ efforts, such ...
    • Analytical study of Space X mission architecture to reach Mars 

      Macía Fernández, Oscar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06-30)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Space is going through a new evolution, where the objectives are much more ambitious than before thanks to the new technologies. The possibilities that arise from these new achievable projects are grateful, such as creating ...
    • Analytical study of the Apollo 11 mission architecture 

      Lahoz Gaitx, Pau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06-30)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The return of the idea of going to the Moon throughout the last years has motivated the development of studies related with the design of lunar manned missions. This thesis covers di erent aspects related with the choice ...
    • Design of an azimuth /elevation mount for Sun-tracking of a solar panel 

      Blanco Bravo, Iker (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Despite the fact that renewable energies are progressing, the present reality shows us that conventional methods of energy generation are more efficient just as contaminating. It leads to find not only new greener methods, ...
    • Evolutionary algorithms applied to interplanetary spacecraft trajectories optimization: a numerical study 

      Ramírez Parejo, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-04-20)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Sending spacecrafts to any other planet or satellite within the Solar System is a difficult task. To be able to reach it at a precise time, it is crucial to know at which position the target planet is going to be, as well ...
    • Studiy of a sensor array for experimental ambient conditions monitoring 

      Fernández Prat, Manel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Although they normally go together, the world of environmental monitoring and water monitoring often go their separate ways. There are sensor arrays that do one of two things, but the options are greatly reduced if we talk ...
    • Study of methods for automatic path finding on the Tisserand graph 

      García Estelrich, Celestino (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Interplanetary missions have awoken the interest of space agencies with the objective of discovering and analyzing distant planets. Distant targets become impractical to explore due to the large amount of propellant that ...
    • Study on the influence of wing deformation on the aerodynamic performance of paragliders 

      Frigola Manzano, Oriol (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The goal of this work is to compute the performance of a paragliding wing taking into account thein-flight shape deformation. To this end, a fluid-structure solution approach combining inviscidaerodynamics with viscous ...
    • Study: implementation of an interplanetary trajectory optimisation algorithm using the Tisserand graph 

      Calvente Lozano, Oscar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Nowadays, technology advances have given us the chance to achieve things that a couple generations ago could not even dream of. Space exploration is one of those achievements and space mission designing is a vital part ...
    • Study: natural gravity assist manoeuvres applied to interplanetary trajectories 

      Mas Sanz, Esther (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06-10)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      In recent years space exploration has become more and more prolific. Its nature has changed, from a public state-funded (rather unusual) activity with a main goal of challenging human and physical barriers to a private ...
    • Study: parametric performance of island model optimisation applied to interplanetary trajectories 

      Pérez Pérez, Àlex (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The study of interplanetary trajectories is a field with many difficulties due to the complexity of the problem at hand. Finding a trajectory that fulfils all the position, time and fuel consumption requirements is a ...
