Abstract

Fluid sloshing in a rigid circular cylindrical tank is investigated; the tank is resting on soil foundation and is excited by horizontal seismic accelerations. A rigid annular baffle is connected to the inner wall of the storage tank to reduce liquid sloshing. By using the fluid subdomain method, the convective velocity potential is derived. An equivalent model with mass-spring oscillators is proposed to describe the sloshing motions of the contained liquid. Then, by means of the least square method, a complex polynomial fraction is employed to fit the dynamic impedance of the soil. A nested lumped parameter model is established to model the effect of the soil foundation. The substructure method allows to obtain the soil-tank-liquid coupled model. The equation of motion of the coupled system is solved by the Newmark-β method. A comparison between the present sloshing results and those published in the literature shows an excellent agreement. The effects of the soil parameters, the baffle position and its size on the dynamic behavior of the soil-tank-liquid system are discussed in detail. The results demonstrate that the soil properties and the baffle parameters can have a remarkable influence on liquid sloshing. The novelty of this research is that an analytical model for the soil-tank-liquid-baffle coupled system is derived for the first time and it allows to study the dynamics and sloshing response of the system with accuracy and low computational cost.
