Abstract

Small satellite space thrusters are designed to provide force for short time periods.

• New generation of thrusters will be made with High Entropy Alloy (HEA) materials.
• Predicting damage initiation for this kind of metallic structure subjected to thermal shock is of fundamental importance.
• The preliminary thermal-stress analysis is mandatory in order to understand the complex failure mechanism of the space thruster.
• An optimisation analysis of the material distribution along the combustion chamber thickness can lead to an improvement of the thermal-stress response.

KeywordsSmall satellite space thrusters; thermal-stress analysis ; force
