This paper presents the median surface model and the integral model, and we use them to analyses the practical application of a kind of typical oil tank displacement recognition and tank volume calibration problem. Finally, we obtain the more accurate displacement parameters and accomplish the solution of the two questions. Besides, according to the measured data of annex 2, we can find two functional relations that named equation 14 and equation 15. And by these two equations, we can get a set of approximate solution. At the same time, we can get that the calculated model error is less than or equal to 1.61% by MATLAB.
