Description

The CFVib team from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM) during the 2016 Fly Your Thesis! programme parabolic flight campaign in the Novespace A310 Zero-G aircraft. The team's experiment looked at the control of fluids with vibrations. Fluids in weightlessness behave quite differently than under normal gravity conditions; for instance sloshing of fuel in spacecraft tanks is a great challenge yet to be resolved. The CFVib team looked at how they could control fluids in weightlessness using high frequency vibrations. A first look at their data shows some promising but also surprising results.
