Özet

Boom deployment vibration analysis is presented for a solar sail 3U Cubesat. The damping of the boom vibration using shape memory alloys is examined. It is found that shape memory alloys do not reduce vibration below a certain level. Vibration damping via inherent friction in the deployment system is also considered. The analysis showed that the vibration may be completely damped due to the inherent friction in the deployment system.
