Dr. Bill Schonberg, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, presented two papers at the 2017 Hypervelocity Impact Symposium, held April 23-28 in Canterbury, England.

Schonberg’s first presentation was based on work he performed as a faculty fellow at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory during the summer of 2016. He described the development of design equations that would increase the safety of human space travel and space operations in earth orbit and beyond.

His second presentation was excerpted from ongoing work that is supported by the NASA Engineering Safety Center. It is aimed at developing new response characterization equations for fuel-tanks on spacecraft operating in the orbital debris environments of earth orbit if they were to be hit be a piece of debris.
