Design of Docking Probe Based on Dynamics Model of Flexible Beam Impact
The issue considered in this paper is a flexible beam based on space probe-cone docking mechanism, which aims to buffer impact effects replacing buffering mechanism. The theoretical model of docking impact dynamics based on flexible beam is built according to the Lagrange Analytical Mechanics theory. The shape of docking probe is optimized by using genetic algorithm.
