Propellant Management Physics

The aim of this Topical Team is to bring together Experts on the fields of propellant management and fundamental physics to increase the European cooperation of research groups.

This Topical Team shall identify the critical physical phenomena affecting the propellant behaviour in tanks and define how to approach them to support a step forward in the state-of-art knowledge on propellant management. The definition of generic experiments isolating each physical phenomenon will be carried out with the intent of defining and validating exceptionally reliable physical models and support their integration within computational fluid dynamics programs. Finally, a more complex sloshing experiment featuring the interaction of the selected phenomena will be proposed.
