Design, Analysis and Verification of a Microgravity Shear Cell

Microgravity shear cell project is to verify and prove the safety and reliability of the test apparatus which is going to be onboard the NASA’s microgravity test aircraft. At the same time, the results from the analysis should be used to improve the existing design. Most of the analysis was done by Finite Element Analysis technique with modeling a virtual model with existing blue prints. All different components were examined and improved in order to satisfy NASA’s requirement before getting on the airplane.
