Longitudinal and lateral liquid sloshing in a partially filled tanker affect the braking performance of the tankers. The movement during braking of the liquid load is determined by the change in the position of the centre of gravity of the load inside the vehicle. Becoming an undesirable phenomenon when analyzing the performance of the vehicle braking manoeuver. In this paper modelling of the behaviour of the cross-section circular tank with baffles, partially filled with liquid agro-food products, was performed, which performs a braking manoeuver. Two different fluids have been used to simulate the sloshing effect of agro-food liquid cargo and study the behaviour of the tank. In to order generate the geometric model of the tank was done by using SolidWorks, and simulating the behaviour of the tank and cargo with agro-food products during the ANSYS-CFX braking manoeuver. A sequence of numerical experiments has been carried out to estimate the pressure developed over the tanker wall and the free surface displacement of the fluids for different fill levels. Simulations with the two liquids and the results obtained were compared to be able to analyze the behaviour of the tank partially filled into a braking manoeuver.
Key words: sloshing liquid / braking / agro-food liquid / ANSYS / baffles
