In summary, the conversation is about the experience of a driver of an oil container truck in two different scenarios - one with no partition and the other with partition, but with the same quantity of oil. The person asking the question is wondering if there would be any difference in driving experience and the other person responds that there would be a cumulative effect in the former case and individual effects in the latter case. They also discuss the possibility of sloshing and its impact on driving. In the end, they conclude that if the volume is completely filled with oil, the presence of baffles will not make a difference, but if the volume is not completely filled, then the absence of baffles will make the sloshing more serious.

Dear Friends!
I want to know the experience of driver of the oil container(tanker) truck shown in two forms while driving on a road with curves at varying speeds.
1.When container has no partition.
2.When container is partitioned but contains same quantity of oil.

I see no reason for a difference.

Thank you Tesl@!
I think in the former case there is reinforcement and cumulative effect!Whereas in later case individual effects(inertial ...etc.) are not causing cumulative effect.
Am I correct?
Ignore weight of partions!

Is the container completely full, or is it possible for sloshing to occur?

Thank You Chestermiller!
I need to understand both cases.
Case1 When all volumes are completely occupied with oil.
Still I think fuid has possibility of inertia of rotation etc...
Case 2 When in both cases fluid is not completely occupying the chambers.
Here I think in linear motion in decelaration and accleration various effects must be experienced by driver.
In curve motion as well there will be some additional effects.

If the volume is completely filled with oil, then it will make no difference if there are baffles present. If the volume is not completely filled with oil, the sloshing will be much more serious when there are no baffles present.
