 March 15, 2017, 01:25 lateral excitation for sloshing in ansys cfx vof model #1 Member   naveen kumar s Join Date: Aug 2016 Location: india, bengalore Posts: 51 Rep Power: 9 hello i have simulated a rectangular tank with roll oscillation. using cfx vof model ..means in the domain motion i have given angular velocity.. now for same tank in x axis i have to give oscillation motion like, going front and back in x direction (lateral excitaion) (x(t)=X0 sin (wt)). but in domain motion there is only rotation .. where can i give this motion in x axis the tank containing partially liquid it has to move like that equation. can anyone tell where can i give motion in cfx. please and urgent thank u

I recommend you do this in moving mesh as you can easily put in arbitrary motions, and it also takes proper account of the accelerations. Rotating frames of reference models assumes constant rotational velocity, so acceleration terms are not accounted for. And if your question is urgent then contact ANSYS support. That is what you pay them for. Nobody in this forum is being paid, so we will answer your question in our own good time.
