Analyzing Strength

This is a photo of the possible mechanical structure of our NEUDOSE CubeSat completed by our Mechanical Structure Team. In this photo, a force of 10Gs is being applied, where 1 G is equivalent to the force of gravity at Earth's surface (or 9.8 m/s^2). The scale represents the displacement of the structure or how much the structure will bend/move due to the 10G force. Many simulations and studies like these must be done to find an ideal structure which we can then model and test in real life.
