Abstract:

Contents Saturn V low-gravity fluid mechanics problems and their investigation by full-scale orbital experiment An experimental investigation of the dynamic behavior of the liquid-vapor interface under adverse low- gravitational conditions Inviscid fluid flow in an accelerating axisymmetric container Some thermal aspects of a contained fluid in a reduced-gravity environment Distribution of noncondensable gases in liquids under low-g conditions The fluid mechanics of condensing mercury in a low-gravity environment Dynamic response of liquids in partially-filled containers suddenly experiencing weightlessness Low-gravity liquid reorientation Interfacial stability of liquid layers on elastic surfaces Sloshing of a liquid in a draining or filling tank under variable-g conditions The effect of wall elasticity and surface tension on the forced oscillations of a liquid in a cylindrical container Shape and stability of the liquid-gas interface in a rotating cylindrical tank at low g Meniscus shape under reduced-gravity conditions Liquid settling in large tanks The Martin Companys low-g experimental facility The application of hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces for phase separation in a low-g environment.
