Abstract : The report describes an investigation of the effect of the Centaur orientation maneuver on the liquid fuel. A justification for model testing is presented with scaling equations and the results of preliminary tests. The main tests used a 1/90th scale tank model and a trajectory determined from the scaling equations. The behavior of the model contents is described and mathematically analyzed. (Author)
