The model presented in Chapters 2 and 3 is able to describe the evolution of a free surface between two incompressible fluids. But by using it one has to keep in mind that there are severe assumptions necessary to get the respective partial differential equations (§2.6). The described discretization with the finite volume method and a volume-of-fluid approach for the interface description is generally found to be suitable for the simulation of fuel tank sloshing.
