Abstract:

The approach, concept, design, and cost of hyperenvironmental simulation facilities for evaluating effects of space vehicle environment on specimens up to 250 pounds are summarized. With the objective of combining environment variables wherever applicable and feasible, four basic facilities were conceived with several environments each. As part of the design back-up, some of the problems, methods and techniques of simulation are discussed. A summary is also given of the pertinent results of some experiments conducted to prove design feasibility in certain critical areas of simulation. Author
