Orbital Mechanics for Engineering Students – Howard D. Curtis – 2nd Edition

Description

Orbital Mechanics for Students, Second Edition, provides an introduction to the basic concepts of space mechanics. These include vector kinematics in three dimensions; Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation; relative motion; the vector-based of the classical two-body problem; derivation of Kepler’s equations; orbits in three dimensions; preliminary orbit determination; and orbital maneuvers.
The also covers relative motion and the two-impulse rendezvous problem; interplanetary mission design using patched conics; rigid-body used to characterize the attitude of a space vehicle; satellite attitude dynamics; and the characteristics and design of multi-stage launch vehicles.
