ESABASE2 Debris

The ESABASE2/Debris application can be used to perform risk analyses appropriately consider the risk posed to a spacecraft by the space debris and meteoroid environment based on the latest environment models. Geometry models can be extended to contain shielding parameters for those fully three-dimensional analyses taking into account geometrical shadowing effects and secondary ejecta.
Available environment models:

Furthermore, the Debris application allows to apply several pre-defined, but configurable state-of-the-art failure and damage laws. In addition, the user can use his own failure and damage equations via the so called “user subroutine” interface.

Damage Laws

The design and damage equations implemented in ESABASE2 are freely configurable by means of their relevant parameters. Some common equations with predefined parameters are offered via the debris editor. In addition, user-defined damage laws can be linked to ESABASE2 via external freely programmable User Subroutines.
