Description

Proceedings of the 13th ASCE Aerospace Division Conference on Engineering, Science, Construction, and Operations in Challenging Environments and the 5th NASA/ASCE Workshop on Granular Materials in Space Exploration, held in Pasadena, California, April 15-18, 2012. Sponsored by the Aerospace Division of ASCE.

Earth and Space 2012 contains 162 peer-reviewed papers on the technological issues of working in challenging environments on Earth, the moon, other planets, and space.

Topics include:

  • granular materials in lunar and martian exploration;
  • exploration and utilization of extraterrestrial bodies;
  • mechanics of advanced materials and structures;
  • hydraulic and earth structures;
  • 21st century engineering education in dynamics, controls, and structures;
  • ballistic impact and crashworthiness response of aerospace structures;
  • sensors and structures in challenging environments; and
  • “vision theme” in aerospace engineering.

This collection will be of interest to engineers, scientists, educators, and other professionals working in extreme environments on Earth and in space.
