Abstract

Sloshing of fluids with a free surface contained in liquid storage tanks is numerically simulated by an arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation. The fluid is considered viscous and Newtonian, while the flow is assumed laminar and incompressible. A partitioned and distributed computational [...]

Abstract

Lagrangian finite element methods emerged in fluid dynamics when the deficiencies of the Eulerian
methods in treating free surface flows (or generally domains undergoing large shape deformations)
were faced. Their advantage relies upon natural tracking of boundaries and [...]
