structural model


structurally representative model of the flight model used for qualification of the structural design and for correlation with structural mathematical models


  • NOTE 1 The system structural model usually consists of a representative structure, with structural dummies of the flight equipment, and also includes representative mechanical parts of other subsystems (e.g. mechanisms and solar panels).
  • NOTE 2 The system structural model is also used for final validation of test facilities, GSE, and associated procedures.
  • NOTE 3 More detailed information on the build standard and the use of this model is given in ECSS-E-HB-10-02.
