Sloshing tank subjected to Sinusoidal Rectilinear Motion
Dear DualSPHysics Team,
Could you please help me with the following inquiries. I am carrying out the analysis of a sloshing tank subjected to Sinusoidal Rectilinear Motion. I am trying now to determine the FORCES in the left wall of the tank and also the HEIGHT of water in the left wall of the tank. As I am a new user of DualSPHysics, I am first getting used to using the FreeCAD interface with the DualSPHysics Macro, so once I have understood it, I will later modify the XML document by myself.
So, my questions are:
Regarding the forces: I want to determine the force acting in the left wall of the tank to compare later on with an experiment that I want to perform. I have noticed in one of the tutorials (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2g7PzfrMomM&list=PLwaIMU-iIzj3cNmPoxGVJ3uWeIa0g49Ko&index=9) that one can get the Force of moving objects, like the case of the tank would be. So, in order to determine the force, I created an object in the left-hand side of the tank, and I have named this object as "wall". I have subjected this object to the same Sinusoidal Rectilinear Motion of the tank, and I have measured the forces, the correspondent file is "Force_on_leftWall". So, my question is. Is it this approach correct, or I am missing some important considerations to measure the force?
Regarding the hight of water: I want to determine the hight of the water on the left side of the tank. In order to do so, I have been reading and I have found a way to do it in the tutorial of DualSPHysics (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-hSukMETNI&list=PLwaIMU-iIzj3cNmPoxGVJ3uWeIa0g49Ko&index=5). However, as you could imagine, I pretend to measure the height of the water in a point right next to the left wall of the tank (as it would be done if a sensor is set in the wall of a tank in an experiment). My problem is that this point that I want to measure its height, is moving along the x-axis. It means I cannot enter just 1 point in the MeasuringTool, and I am not sure how I should proceed. Could you give me an option to perform this calculation?
I am attacheing in this message the corresponding files that I generated in DualSPHysics using FreeCAD. So, you please could take a look at it and understand in a better way my problem. At first I am using an interparticle distance of 0.005m just to reduce the calculation time with my computer. I intend to optimize it once these questions have been answered.
Thanks in advance for your attention to this email, and any comment, please do not hesitate to contact me.
