3D-POC - 3D Properties of Coronal Mass Ejections

The 3D-POC study is designed to exploit the unprecedented capabilities of the NASA Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) to better understand the physical processes and propagation characteristics of solar CMEs. CMEs are the main driver of major disturbances of our "space weather".

ACAP - Global Gravity Field Modelling From Orbit Data Based on the Acceleration Approach

The main purpose of the ACAP project was to compute a global gravity field based on precise orbit information using the so-called acceleration approach. This method is based on Newton's second law of gravitation, which states that the acceleration of a mass is related to the forces acting on it.

ADAM - Analytical Nonlinear Damper Modelling

The ADAM project was aimed at investigating the case that both the damping rate and the spring rate are non-linear and a function of the deflection, and that the damping rates and eigenfrequencies of the damper and the adjacent structure are different. This involved the development of a transient, non-linear finite element analysis model and correlation with a non- linear test specimen, a cable shock damper presenting highly non-linear behaviour.

BALANCE - Sustainable Management and Information System for National Park Visitors and National Park Operators

The BALANCE project follows a two-tier strategy: on the one hand an easy-to-use GPS/GALILEO suitable mobile guide is being developed, which offers location and time based information to the visitors of national parks or biosphere parks while at the same time tracking their routes. On the other hand, this tracking information is anonymously transferred to the analysis and prediction tool developed in BALANCE, which delivers easy to use information for the national parks about their visitors’ behaviour (e.g. favourite routes, stops, etc.).

BII-NACO - Bio-inspired Ultra Lightweight Nanocomposite Materials for Application to Large and Gossamer Structures in Space

The main objective of BII-NACO was the development of lightweight bio-inspired nanocomposite materials with advanced nanostructural features and their evaluation for space applications. The aim was to test such "second generation nanocomposites" for their potential to achieve desired mechanical properties simultaneously (e.g. strength and elasticity) and to use nano-scale matrix modification to solve existing issues in composites for space applications, such as matrix-fibre delamination.
