Analysis and control of state jump in space deployable structures under alternating temperature loads

Chen, Congcong; Li, Tuanjie; Tang, Yaqiong; Wang, Zuowei

State jump has been experimentally observed in space deployable structures working in alternating temperature environments. State jump is a phenomenon in which the geometric shape of the structure changes after the temperature loading and unloading process, which makes the working accuracy of the space deployable structure intrinsically unpredictable. This paper aims to investigate the causes of this state jump phenomenon and seek measures to reduce its effect. Firstly, the static multiple-stable-state phenomenon resulting in state jump is analyzed for clearance joints in deployable structures. Then, an equivalent model consisting of a variable stiffness spring and a contact element for state jump analysis is proposed, which is verified by a finite element simulation. Influence factors and control methods of state jump are further explored. Finally, numerical results of a space deployable structure of an umbrella-shaped antenna show the effectiveness of the developed analytical method.
