10g sloshing experiment of a one degree of freedom system for fluid induced damping research video

Submitted by gpap on Thu, 03/05/2020 - 12:29

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.

SPH computation of a sloshing tank

Submitted by gpap on Thu, 03/05/2020 - 12:22

In this video by SLOWD partners Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and CNR Institute of Marine Engineering we can visualize 3 seconds of an SPH simulation when a tank is moved with a damped harmonic motion. The tank represents a fuel contained place in an aircraft wing and the tank motion mimics the typical tank motion when turbulence interacts with the wing. The number of particles is around 150000. Colors represent the velocity magnitude.


SLOWD Public Website Launched!

Submitted by admin on Tue, 12/24/2019 - 10:01

SLOWD has just launched its public website, which will be the main source of information about the SLOWD progress, activities, news and significant results. In addition, the project objectives, the solution proposed in order to achieve them as well as descriptions of the SLOWD Consortium partners are presented. It will also be updated with all SLOWD relevant documents, news, events and other resources on a regular basis.

The website is constructed in a simple and user-friendly manner, enabling the users to navigate easily and have quick access to the information.
