    This thesis presented a new option for the Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) to better handle the traffic in congested Terminal Maneuvering Areas (TMAs). The concept, based on 4D trajectories, uses the required time of arrival ...
  • The influence of an asymmetrical structure on the vibrations of satellites 

    Tran-Viet, Vu (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-31)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This thesis describes the influence of an asymmetric structure on the vibration response of satellites, specifically of CubeSat. Two (numerical) versions of asymmetric structure were created based on fractal geometry, as ...
