Mars lander heat-shield material selection

with Dr Claes Fredriksson and Luca Masi

Join this web seminar on Thursday, May 18 to find out how the Aerospace Edition of CES EduPack allows you to perform advanced material selection for a Mars lander entering the planet's atmosphere, inspiring students with a topical case study in space exploration.

MarsJoin this web seminar to:

  • Learn how multiple objectives are used to find high-performance material candidates for this demanding application
  • Find out how the visual and interactive software tools are used to compare ceramic options with light metals alloys and composites
  • See an advanced and engaging case study that can be used to stimulate the interest of tomorrow’s engineers.

About the Presenters

Dr Claes Fredriksson has more than 15 years’ experience teaching Materials-related subjects to undergraduate and postgraduate students in Sweden, Canada, Belgium and the USA, mainly in Mechanical Engineering. After gaining an MSc in Engineering Physics and PhD in Theoretical Physics he worked in both theoretical and experimental research on polymers, metals and biomaterials. He has a passion for teaching and won a grant as part of Sweden’s Excellence in Teaching Program to enable him to teach in the USA and facilitate the cross-pollination of pedagogical approaches.  

Luca Masi is an Aerospace Engineer working at Granta Design as Senior Business Development Manager. He has run materials selection short courses at universities (Georgia Tech, Northwestern University, Boston University, UC Irvine) and conferences (TMS, ASEE). Before joining Granta, he has collaborated with the French Space Agency on software development for bio-inspired space trajectory optimization, and on computational techniques for multi-objective optimization as part of his PhD at the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde (UK). He is author of several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters for AIAA and IEEE on these subjects. He also has R&D industrial experience in spacecraft propulsion systems. Luca also holds a Master’s Degree (first class) in Space Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Pisa (Italy).
