 March 14, 2018, 12:46 Center of Mass of Two-Phase Flow #1 New Member   Joshua Smith Join Date: Mar 2018 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 8 Here is a simplified description of the original problem. I have a tank of two fluids (for example water and air). I am looking at the sloshing of the fluids as the tank is pitched upward. This sloshing will shift the center of mass since the two fluids have different densities. I am interested in writing the center of mass of the volume as a function of time. I know that the center of mass (for example for x) is determined by the triple integral of x*density with the integral divided by the total mass (http://www.math.wpi.edu/Course_Mater...abs/node3.html). I also know you can take the volume integral of density. I think the center of pressure calculation would only work in specific cases (no pitch). Is there a built in function, or a way to take the volume integral of a custom function, that would give the center of mass of the fluid and output it as a monitor? Thank you. Joshua
