Our laboratory has hosted several seminars for undergraduate and graduate students that are expanded from the seminars in the laboratory. Based on those seminars, we started the Research Group for Cutting-Edge Space Systems (CESS) that study on future space syste in 2017. We hosts the seminars as follows now. These are opened about once a week. The member of CESS can join the seminars.

NameNext timeOverview
GMD Seminar
(season 2)
once twice per two weeks, room #345 The seminar to study on Gossamer Multibody Dynamics. The objective of the senimor is to master the Energy Momentum Method that is one of the numerical analysis method of nonlinear structural dynamics. The seminor finished in August 2017, and marged to the Sail seminar and the CESS seminar. The GMD seminor will restart in October 2017, which will start from the foundation of analytical mechanics and differential geometory. Join us!
Sail Seminar 6:30pm, Monday,
room #345
The seminar to study on the numerical method of dynamics simulation of the deployment of membrane structure and its transient motion/steady state motion after the deployment taking the 50m-sized solar power sail proposed by JAXA. Recent topics is to make the input data for the numerical analysis, and the discussion about the structural analysis and the structural feature of the solar power sail. This seminar is intended for B4 and guraduate students.
ANCF Seminar 1:30pm, Monday,
room #323
The seminar to study on the analysis of thin shell structure based on ANCF (Absolute Nodal Coordinate Formulation), to conduct the numerical simulation, and to discuss on the motion of gossamer structure. This seminar is intended for graduate students.
CESS Seminar 4:40pm, Friday,
room #345
We hold debriefing meeting of CESS (Research group on Cutting-Edge Space Systems), and the seminor to study geometric mechanics alternately.
BCON seminor
(season 2)
10:30am, Thrusday,
room #345
The seminor to study on the analysis of self-deployable membrane truss.
