Abstract

Plateau tank is just a reservoir filled with a liquid inside of which there is another immiscible liquid of the same density. The behaviour of the inner liquid can be studied in some respects as in weightlessness. Several Plateau tank facilities have been built-up in the last decade at Lamf/ETSIA. In this paper a new apparatus for liquid bridge experimentation in simulated microgravity conditions is presented. Such equipment allows to impose to the experimental configuration a wide range of controlled mechanical disturbances and incorporates appropriate diagnosis means. The apparatus' may be operated either manually or from a desktop computer to which a remote controller can be linked for telescience operation.
