Abstract

The aim of this work is to carry out numerical simulations in the time domain of seakeeping problems taking into account internal flow in tanks, including sloshing. To this aim, a Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solver for simulating internal flows in tanks is coupled in the [...]

Abstract

The aim of this work is to be able to cope with complex sloshing-seakeeping problems in an effective manner. For this purpose, two different solvers will be integrated into one coupled tool to take advantage of their characteristics.

The Particle Finite Element Method [...]

Abstract

The aim of this article is to present the influence of mesh spacing in the error parameters computed for rectangular tanks seismically excited. The potential flow theory is considered using the finite difference method to set a linear numerical formulation due to its simplicity [...]

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 [...]
