Abstract :

Sloshing is a phenomenon which has gained importance where liquid and air interaction happens with in a closed volume. This is predominantly observed in the field of Automotive, Aeronautics, and Petrochemical storage to name a few. Fundamentally enclosed fluid in a defined volume is a relative motion with respect to time when there is acceleration or de-acceleration which will change the direction of fluid with in enclosed volume leading to damage the encloser itself.In order to study the influence and impact of sloshing we have taken an irregular shape fuel tank from an automotive application. Here in this case the study revolves around different level of fluid in the fuel tank, tank without baffle and tank with baffle in order to understand the Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI). During the course of our study it helps us to understand the design, position of baffle and opening on the baffle in co-relation with the different level of fluid in the tank. To carry out the study we have taken the help of ANSYS FLUENT 15.0.7 and User Defined Function (UDF) to understand different parameters and evolve a viable design which meets the performance criterion. During this act, an internal guideline in terms of meshing, planning and solution time is developed without compromising the results. Keywords:Sloshing;CFD; FSI;Baffle
