WHAT IS AIRBUS SLOSHING ROCKET WORKSHOP?

The Airbus Sloshing Rocket Workshop is a hybrid competition (online and in-person) in which teams are required to design a low-cost reusable rocket which is destabilized by the movement of water stored in an unpressurised tank located on the rear side of the vehicle.

The participants, divided into teams, would be provided high-quality educational material from Airbus, focused on the sloshing and designing challenge.

The rocket design shall incorporate mechanisms to manage the dynamic forces introduced by the sloshing water to maximize its range, time of flight and liquid payload capacity. The controlling mechanism can be designed based on passive and/or active means and its performance is a key aspect of the design.

This challenge aims to simulate the conditions experienced by real world aerospace vehicles containing liquid propellant such as satellites or next generation aircrafts.
