August 25, 2019 at 7:25 pmnikosSubscriberHello I am running a coupled analysis of Fluent and Transient Structural for simulating sloshing of a fluid in a tank.
Pics show the mesh of the fluid body and the dynamic zones created for the model. There are two fluid-structure interface regions, the lower is between tank and water and the upper is between tank and air.
Smoothing and Layering are checked in Dynamic Mesh (see pics).
I would like some help regarding the dynamic mesh and what the optimal settings could be because I am running a lot into the "negative cell volume detected" error and in general the sloshing is not so apparent and effective.
I also tried to make use of the cell height setting, under Meshing Options as well as the Solution Stabilization (see pics) but I need to find some definite way to use this settings effectively.
Thanks for any input on the problem.

If you search for "negative volume" you'll find the general solution is to decrease the time step.

hello nikos, I edit the same for my master work. I wanted to ask if you could solve the problem and possibly help me?

I have the same problems as you or maybe even more. For me, the lower fluidity (water) does not even move. Also, I don't know which model to use for the two fluids. I think you would have to do a VOF. So that the water gets into a Sloshing movement.When I tried two FS interfaces of the fluids to pair with the FSI of the solid, an error message also came, so I could not have expected these settings any further.

Read up on the VOF model. Why would you need two interfaces to pair up the fluid & solid zones?

can you provide me with tutorials on liquid sloshing
