Tanker Truck Sloshing Simulation Using Bi-directionally Coupled CFD and Multi-Body Dynamics Solvers
In this work, the multi-disciplinary problem arising from fluid sloshing within a partially filled
tanker truck undergoing lateral acceleration is investigated through the use of multiphysics
coupling between a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver and a multi-body dynamics
(MBD) solver. This application represents a challenging test case for simulation technology
within the design of commercial vehicles and is intended to demonstrate a novel approach
in the field of computer aided engineering.
