External Floating Roof Tank Simulation

An oil tank with an external floating roof had an issue during filling process: the guide pole which is in contact with the roof was undergoing aggressive deformation until it touched the walls. A Fluid Structure simulation was carried out to perform filling process with other moving parts within the tank. The maximum deformation of the Guide Pole due to the lift force generated by the internal pressures while filling the tank with oil was evaluated.
