CLIFF, E.M.; LIU, Z.  y  SPIES, R. D.. A Model for the Thermoelastic Behavior of a Joint-Leg-Beam System for Space Applications. Rev. Unión Mat. Argent. [online]. 2008, vol.49, n.2, pp.55-66. ISSN 0041-6932.

Rigidizable-Inflatable (RI) materials offer the possibility of deployable large space structures (C.H.M. Jenkins (ed.), Gossamer Spacecraft: Membrane and Inflatable Structures Technology for Space Applications, Progress in Aeronautics and Astronautics, 191, AIAA Pubs., 2001) and so are of interest in applications where large optical or RF apertures are needed. In particular, in recent years there has been renewed interest in inflatable-rigidizable truss-structures because of the efficiency they offer in packaging during boost-to-orbit. However, much research is still needed to better understand dynamic response characteristics, including inherent damping, of truss structures fabricated with these advanced material systems. One of the most important characteristics of such space systems is their response to changing thermal loads, as they move in and out of the Earth's shadow. We study a model for the thermoelastic behavior of a basic truss componentconsisting of two RI beams connected through a joint subject to solar heating. Axial and transverse motions as well as thermal response of the beams with thermoelastic damping are taking into account. The model results in a couple PDE-ODE system. Well-posedness and stability results are shown and analyzed.
