21 June 2015 Simulation and analysis of lightweight space mirror design
Author Affiliations +
This work devoted to a comparative study of different designs of lightweighted mirrors, as well as a comparison of materials, of which these mirrors are made of. We consider such methods of lightweighting as: pockets (radial-circular, triangular, hexagonal), holes, contoured back (single arch and double arch), so-called «sandwich» and selection of materials.
