Spacecraft in Orbit

Application ID: 104341

This model demonstrates how to solve an ordinary differential equation for the motion of a spacecraft about a planet. In addition to computing the path, it is possible to use several results presentation features to make interesting visualizations. For a full description of this model, see our accompanying blog post "Computing and Visualizing Satellite Orbits in COMSOL®”.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
