Abstract:

As one simple means of avoiding dynamic coupling between sloshing of liquid propellants and automatic control system response, it has been suggested that propellant tanks be compartmented so as to raise the normal sloshing frequencies. The present paper presents measured values of total force response for a rigid cylindrical tank with a vertical center wall half-tank excited in translation and in pitching about the liquid center of gravity. The test equipment and procedures are described. Author
