Hi every body
I try to model and simulate the full water tanker in ABAQUS Standard. I have many questions. Can every one help me? 1) How can I model water and interaction between inside of tanker and water? 2) Is it necessary to define contact between these surfaces? 3) Is it necessary to use eulerian approach? 4) I used the acoustic element for water and Lagrangian approach to solve problem. I defined the material properties for water as follows: -Bulk modulus -Density Is it correct or not? Thanks for your help T.Kh [Non-text portions of this message have been removed] |
Depends what you are trying to achieve in "the simulation". Acoustic elements are the right choice if you are looking at small-strain linear vibrations, modes, small-displacement sloshing. If the tanker is not full you need the Eulerian feature.

If you are using abaqus standard, you are probably dealing with modal or mode-based vibration analysis. If the state is so, you can not use eulerian mesh capability, which is truely for explicit time integration analysis. For the interaction between the tancer and acoustic water elements, you need to use surface based "tie" constraint. it will provide required interaction. You dont need to define contact or eulerian approach. Bulk modulus and density are just enough for acoustic medium.
I think what you should think about is how to model the free surface of the water. this is because since the acoustic elements do not have any displacement degrees of freedom, you will not be able to see the shape of the free surface of the water. More importantly, you should also think of how to consider the effect of gravity on vibration modes and response of the tank. How to consider this effect. good luck --- In [hidden email], "samizdat43" <samizdat43@...> wrote: > > Depends what you are trying to achieve in "the simulation".

If you are using acoustic elements to model the fluid, the free-surface effect can be modeled accurately using a surface impedance (*impedance property & *simpedance) with a value of gravity * depth I believe. Check the manuals or papers by Morand & Ohayon.

Hi everybody
I'm very greatful from your guidances. The considered tanker is a completely full with water and there is no sloshing effect in tanker. Is it necessary to see the shape of the free surface of the water after analysis? It is worthwhile mentioning that the modal and stress analysis (specially in discontinuity rigions such as conjunction of heads and shell of tanker)are analysis shall be done.

Go for coupled eulerian-lagrangian (CEL) approach. Model water as
Eulerian and Tanker as Lagrangian. That is the best for your case. Use general contact which handles both Eulerian and Lagrangian elements. You can find tech briefs and examples on documentation and on simulia web site.

Dear Tayebeh,
I think the best approach to engage with problems of solid-fluid interaction is HYDROSTATIC FLUID ELEMENT as long as pressure gradient is negligible inside the tank, no matter the temperature is changing.
