hello, I have simulated sloshing technique in fluid tank in cfx ansys 14, but my problem is i have used expression for angular velocity of using sinusoidal (expression name is "amp" and its image is in attachment), this expression i have put in domain motion , the rolling of tank is 6 degree but in expression is my equation (angle in radiens*omega in (rad/sec)*sin(omega*t)) is right , i have multiplied omega with roll angle in radians , just see my expression , can i multiply angle in radians to omega (which is frequency).
and below domain motion there is alternate rotation model what it does alternate motion , please give is there any other expression can give for fluid motion.
can i give motion in initiation, u,v,w is there
please help me
thank you

I do not understand your question. Can you state your question again?

for tank motion i have to give expression and my tank motion is rolling in degrees , it is 6 degree ,
and i have given expression as
(6*(pi/180))*omega*sin(omega*t)

omega is in rad/sec

in above equation i have multiplied omega * (rolling angle in radians)
is my equation is right for tank simulation
i am giving this expression in outline tree
default domiain> basic setting > domain motion > rotating > angular velocity

in same dialog box, there is alternate rotation model, what this alternate rotation model does exactly

So you are using rotating frames of reference to model an oscillating rotation? Be aware that rotating frames of reference assumes constant domain velocity so the angular accelerations will not be accounted for. It is up to you to determine whether that is important or not.

If you model this using moving mesh it will include the full motion equations but the simulation will be considerably slower.

how can i apply moving mesh for 3d tank, in tutorials there are only for 2d and when i try doing it by understanding 2d and applying same for 3d ,i need to give mass, moment of inertia , all this i how can i feed correctly

If you are using mass and moments of inertia then you are using the rigid body solver.

I think you need to go back to basics and make sure you are modelling the correct physics.

Is the motion known in advance or is it coupled to the the fluid motion?
Does the tank deform at all?
Please show an image of the tank motion.

i have attached image, for this type simulation, i have alone gone through basics but its lil bit difficult so getting lot of doubt
