The test displayed belongs to a one degree of freedom experimental campaign performed at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid within the SLOWD project. The physical magnitudes measured are acceleration, position and total force. A considerable gain in damping has been reported when compared to the equivalent dry test and it will allow to detect the influence of the fluid in the overall damping of the system. Furthermore, the experimental data extracted from the test will serve as an input for CFD simulations.
