The Global Engineering & Technology Center (GETC) in Poland is renowned for its cutting-edge capabilities in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, sloshing, and multiphase physics modeling using CFD and FEA transient analyses. These capabilities are leveraged to provide invaluable support in the development of thermal management and boil-off models. The primary objective is to thoroughly investigate heat transfer phenomena through tank walls during sloshing and boil-off, with the ultimate aim of deriving low-order models that can significantly enhance the tank development process.
