Sloshing in Rectangular and Cylindrical Tanks
To validate an existing finite volume computational method, featuring a novel scheme to capture the temporal evolution of the free surface, fluid motions in partially filled tanks were simulated. The purpose was to compare computational and experimental results for test cases where measurements were available. Investigations comprised sloshing in a rectangular tank with a baffle at 60% filling level and in a cylindrical tank at 50% filling level. The numerical study started with examining effects of systematic grid refinement and concluded with examining effects of three-dimensionality and effects of variation of excitation period and amplitude. Predicted time traces of pressures and forces compared favorably with measurements.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of Ship Research is a quarterly publication providing highly technical papers on applied research in hydrodynamics, propulsion, ship motions, structures, and vibrations. While the Journal requires that papers present the results of research that advances ship and ocean science and engineering, most contributions bear directly on other disciplines, such as civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, and numerical analysis. High quality papers are contributed from the U.S., Canada and overseas, with representation from established authorities as well as new researchers.
