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.
