Experimental and computer methods for simulation of space radiation effects on
spacecraft materials and devices are discussed. The main principles of laboratory
radiation testing of spacecraft materials and principles of computer modeling of space
radiation effects are covered.
Brief description of several accelerators used in Russia, and at SINP MSU in particular,
for radiation testing of the spacecraft materials and devices is given. Several Russian
mathematical models and software tools used for analysis of the radiation impact on
spacecrafts are described. Information on complex space experiments, where the space
radiation parameters and effects are measured simultaneously onboard the space stations
MIR and ISS, and onboard the Russian geosynchronous spacecraft is given. Some results
of experimental studies and computer modeling are presented.
