Development of Floating Slosh Dampers for Propellant Tanks - FY17

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Development of Floating Slosh Dampers for Propellant Tanks - FY17
The proposed novel method of slosh damping may both reduce the cost of the design and manufacture of propellant tanks, but also increase the performance of the launch vehicle through reduced weight and improved vehicle control. The objective of this proposal is to develop, test, and analyze the innovative concept of a floating slosh damper consisting of hollow spheres. Investigate the effects of sphere diameter, material, and number of layers for effectiveness of slosh control. More »
