Submitted by gpap on Mon, 09/07/2020 - 14:54

The SLOWD project was delighted to participate in the 10th EASN Virtual International Conference on “Innovation in Aviation & Space to the Satisfaction of the European Citizens”, which took place online between 02 and 04 September, 2020 .
Over the years the EASN conference has been established as a major European Dissemination event. The 10th international gathering of the EASN Association was attended by more than 350 researchers from various disciplines who presented their high quality recent achievements and new upstream research ideas.

The scientific peer-reviewed paper of our SLOWD colleagues- S. Marrone, A. Colagrossi - under the title "Detailed study on the extension of the δ-SPH model to multi-phase flow" is out. 
The article was published in "Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering" journal on the 15th of August 2020 and it is available in open access through the following links.

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.
