      Hello everyone,


       


      I'm trying to simulate fuel tank sloshing by using 2-way FSI. To do so, I use Transient Structural module and Fluent module via System Coupling. I simulated all the wing as shell elements and fuel as solid element to decrease computation time. I give rotation to wing and want to visiualize how fuel reacts to that motion. I simulated rectangular tank before and I succeded but in this simulation I cannot succeed to implement fuel into fuel tank. This is how I modeled wing;


      This is the model of fluid domain;



      This is initial model of fuel with air. 



       


      As you can see I initialized it with 50% fuel but once the calculations are done, it appears no fuel. I don't know what is the reason. 


       


      Can you please help me with that?


       


      Thanks,


       


      Tolga.

      Unless you're deforming the structure you can do the motion in Fluent, it'll be quicker.  Missing mass means you have a boundary somewhere, didn't add it in the first place or convergence is poor so it's been lost due to numerical effects.
