Hi every body
I want to simulate a cylandrical tank that half of it filled with water and the tank is vibrating?

Is it possible to simulate this problem by FLUENT?
If yes, How should I simulate vibration?

Im also trying to simulate water in a tank with movement.
Its possible with fluent. You have to use an UDF for the tank movement and the VOF multiphase model.
I still don't know how to make the UDF file work.
Have you got any answers so far?
