The goals of the ICPMSE-7 meeting, as in the past years, are to facilitate exchanges between members of the various engineering disciplines involved in development of space materials, including such aspects as environmental hazards of Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and Deep Space, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operational vehicles.
The book continues to discuss topics started in the earlier publications and adds new data and results.
The proceedings cover a range of inter-disciplinary topics concerning the protection of materials and structures in space and discussing the effects of the aggressive LEO as well as the GEO and Deep Space environments on materials and structures and the ways to predict and reduce these effects in short and long-term space missions.
The book is targeting organizations and individuals involved with space material selction, their reliability and influence of space environmental effects on materials and structures.
