            Electrostatic Dust Mitigation and Manipulation Techniques for Planetary Dust (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            One of the most pervasive limits to lunar surface exploration is the presence of lunar dust, which is electrostatically charged and adheres to everything with which it comes into contact. Electrostatic Dust Mitigation and Manipulation Techniques for Planetary Dust explains how to... control and remove dust in space due to presence of vacuum, abrasiveness of dust particles and electrostatic charge on the particles. This book introduces an innovative technology of using electrostatic and di-electrophoretic forces to remove and transport small particles away from surfaces. It also discusses how to resolve thermal control problems such as dust-covered LRV batteries and reducing lung inhalation and eye irritation problems from the dust. A unique feature to this book is that two abrasive wear test devices were designed and manufactured to study the rate of volume wear for different materials, when subjected to lunar dust simulant of different size ranges. This book is for space system engineers, space exploration researchers, and advanced students and professionals in space engineering.
