Numerical analysis of propellant behavior in tanks: from small-scale to industrial models
EADS ASTRIUM Space Transportation BP3002, Route de Verneuil 66, Les Mureaux 78133, France
This document presents some analysis performed in the frame of COMPERE program . First, the COMPERE Program is presented: participants and main objectives. Then, the results obtained on small-scale experiment computations are analyzed. The third point deals with the computations of ground tests performed in an industrial environment. Finally, future works on propellant management are discussed.
