Magnetic compensation of gravity in fluids: performance and constraints

Abstract : The paper deals with the main theoretical and experimental results gathered over the past 15 years in the domain of magnetic compensation of gravity. Such a technique for which very high fields are required has mainly been used to investigate the behaviour of fluids under space conditions of weightlessness. Advantage and drawback of magnetic levitation are presented; its application for analyzing two-phase fluid behaviour is described.
