Fluid Effect

  1. Dec 13, 2014 #1
    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.
