SLOWD (SLOshing Wing Dynamics) is a H2020 collaborative project aiming to investigate the use of fuel slosh to reduce the design loads on aircraft structures.

This goal will be achieved through investigating the damping effect of sloshing on the dynamics of flexible wing-like structures carrying liquid (fuel) via the development of experimental set-ups complemented by novel numerical and analytical tools.

The primary focus of the project is the application of modelling capabilities to the wing design of large civil passenger aircraft (subject to EASA CS-25 type certification), which are designed to withstand the loads occurring from atmospheric gusts and turbulence and landing impacts.
