Reduced-Order Non-Linear Dynamic System Models

The structural integrity of commercial launch platforms must be assessed for each mission, i.e. safety certification or recertification. A significant amount of structural response data must be collected in order to state confidence bounds on the computed safety margins. Experimental data will very likely need to be supplemented with data generated by numerical simulations of the structural response of the launch platforms to the anticipated flight environments. Efficient, cost-effective methods for generating non-linear structural models of CST platforms will result from this effort.
