Samenvatting

Satellites
orbiting Earth offer unrivalled possibilities for research and commercial applications h owever space activities have left thousands of objects in
orbit which are no longer functional, namely, space debris Their number is predicted to increase exponentially in the future and, d ue to their hypervelocity
motion, collision of fragments with existing and new missions can lead to a catastrophic break up generating even more debris in a cascade effect 1
To
achieve a sustainable space environment, the Design for Demise (D 4 D) strategy proposes to conceive any space object for the end of life disposal
though a destructive atmospheric entry Yet, experience has demonstrated that several parts can survive almost intact, thus representing risk on ground
2 The overarching objective of this research is to contribute with multi scale experiments and modelling to advance the predictive capabilities of the
aerothermal demise of metallic and silicate components
