Impact modelling of a micro-penetrator dart for martian soil sampling

by Hayward, Rachel

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis is submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science. The thesis sets out the results of a structured programme of research or design, development or management studies demonstrating the candidate's own ability to conduct original investigations, to test ideas (either from the candidate's own or those of others) and to obtain appropriate conclusions from the work. Unlike the situation applicable for theses produced in connection with doctoral degrees, candidates are not required to exercise independent critical judgement in the relevant field of study or to make an original contribution to knowledge. A Master's thesis is not intended to be an absolutely definitive work on the subject to which it relates. Theses encapsulate and present the results of a programme of study and research, undertaken in a defined period of time, and do so in a way that has satisfied the assessment requirements for the degree to which they relate.
