Dynamics of Lateral Liquid Sloshing in Flat Cylinder Tanks

Zehong Wei, Xuelian Zheng

Abstract

As a complicated fluid-solid coupling multi-body system, the modelling of tankers are quite difficult. Many efforts had been made to establish equivalent mechanical model to describe liquid sloshing in tanker to simplify the modelling of tankers. The investigation on dynamics of liquid sloshing in tanks will be of great significance and a necessary support. FLUENT software was used to simulate liquid sloshing in flat cylinder tank under the situation of different lateral acceleration and liquid fill level, the center of mass (CM) of liquid bulk was utilized to analyze the dynamics of liquid sloshing. It turned out that the trajectory of liquid bulk’s CM could be described by a curve, not the whole liquid bulk participates in sloshing, and there is a strong nonlinear characteristics in sloshing damping.
