Structure (STR)

The structures subsystem provides the skeleton frame that fits all of the rocket components together. It consists of five support rings, three longerons, and three U-channel beams. These pieces are screwed together with several shear blocks and shear pins. All of these items are machined from aluminum stock. See the structures subsystem section of the report for a detailed schematic and discussion of the load paths.
