Icarus paper on meteoroids entry is out!

How to model meteoroids entry into the atmosphere? Check out a new probabilistic continuum model in our latest paper on Icarus by our Simone Limonta, Mirko Trisolini, Stefan Frey and Camilla Colombo. The highlights of this work are:

  • Novel probabilistic model of asteroid breakup based on NASA Standard Breakup Model.
  • Density-based methodology applied to meteoroid atmospheric entry and impact.
  • Comparison against Monte Carlo simulations for a relevant test case scenario.
  • Application of the model to the 2008TC3 fragmentation event.
