This paper describes an inexpensive, non-invasive, and highly adaptable surface reconstruction device for opaque liquids. The instrument was developed to study the lateral sloshing of ferrofluids in microgravity as part of the UNOOSA DropTES 2019 StELIUM project. Its design is driven by the geometrical and mechanical constraints imposed by ZARM’s d...
This paper addresses the operation in microgravity of the surface reconstruction device whose design is detailed in the first part of the manuscript. The system, employed during the drop tower campaign of the UNOOSA DropTES 2019 StELIUM experiment, studies the axisymmetric and lateral oscillations of a ferrofluid solution in microgravity. The free...
Liquid sloshing represents a major challenge for the design and operation of space vehicles. In low-gravity environments, a highly non-linear movement can be produced due to the lack of stabilizing forces. This gives rise to significant disturbances that impact on the propulsion and attitude control systems of the spacecraft. The employment of magn...
[The final version of this work can be found at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actaastro.2021.08.029 and https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actaastro.2021.07.020] Liquid level measurement devices are required in experimental sloshing research. Several techniques with different capabilities and degrees of complexity have been historically proposed to cover this n...
Liquid sloshing represents a major challenge for spacecraft design and operation. In low-gravity environments, a highly non-linear movement is produced due to the lack of stabilizing forces. This gives rise to significant disturbances that impact on the attitude control system of the vehicle. The employment of magnetically susceptible fluids may op...
Abstract presented to the 26th European Low Gravity Research Association Biennial Symposium and General Assembly.
The sloshing of magnetic liquids has distinctive characteristics that may become useful for the control of propellants in space. Magnetic fields can be used to shift the natural frequencies and damping ratios of an oscillating fluid. In the framework of the UNOOSA DropTES Programme, StELIUM (Sloshing of magnetic LIqUids in Microgravity) will study...
