Sloshing Wing Dynamics

Project description

Investigating the impact of fuel movement on aircraft wing aerodynamics

Fuel sloshing is an important effect for any moving vehicle. Given that most aircraft have fuel stored in the wings, manufacturers are considering this effect to create optimal wing structures. The EU-funded SLOWD project will develop advanced numerical and experimental techniques to further investigate the effect of sloshing on the dynamics of flexible, wing-like structures carrying fuel. Its main goal is to provide a holistic approach to the quantification of energy-dissipation effects associated with the liquid movement inside the fuel tanks as the wing undergoes dynamic excitations. Researchers expect to see a 50 % increase in the damping of the wing structure.
