The baffles in particular, which are designed to dampen the wave motion, must be dimensioned accordingly.
be dimensioned accordingly. By means of a CFD simulation, the unsteady fluid movement inside the tank can be calculated.
The figures show a longitudinal section through a truck tank during a sharp braking maneuver. The interface between fluid and air is shown in blue.
The mechanical loads (pressures) for tank dimensioning are derived from these results.
