About this book


Matthäus Jäger examines the simulation of liquid-gas flow in fuel tank systems and its application to sloshing problems. The author focuses at first on the physical model and the assumptions necessary to derive the respective partial differential equations. The second step involves the cell-centered finite volume method and its application to fluid dynamic problems with free surfaces using a volume of fluid approach. Finally, the application of the method for different use cases is presented followed by an introduction to the methodology for the interpretation of the results achieved.
