Multiphase Wave Lab developed by SLING Programme

The Sloshing of Liquefied Natural Gas (SLING) research project brings together an unparalleled, multidisciplinary team to tackle the complex sloshing physics through advanced experiments and numerical simulations. Under the project, a unique, Multiphase Wave Lab is being established at MARIN’s headquarters, with the main purpose of examining sloshing impacts.

In May the heart of the lab - the autoclave in which the environment can be precisely controlled in a large range of pressures (5 mbar to 10 bar) and temperatures (5 °C -200 °C) - was the first piece of equipment installed. With its 55 t weight and length of 15 m,

the installation of this massive vessel was carefully prepared and took more than two days. The autoclave was successively placed within the 2 mm set accuracy and the last pieces of supporting equipment were installed in August.

In the coming period the gas system will be installed which supplies inert gasses (N2, He, SF6) to the autoclave and together with the liquid and heating/ cooling systems, is responsible for facilitating the tests in the vicinity of the water-vapour boundary. The first tests in the lab are expected to be performed at the beginning of 2018.


South America March 13-15, 2018

MARIN will again be present at the Intermodal South America exhibition in São Paulo, together with our Brazilian partner Oceânica. Meet us in stand 7-90 to discuss the latest developments within shipping & trade.

The SLING programme is funded by NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences (AES), through its funding instrument Perspectief. In Perspectief programmes, researchers, together with a consortium of companies and end users, work on scientific themes in order to further develop a technology. The SLING programme was awarded 5.3 euros by AES in 2015.
