### TITLE : TANK RUPTURE - Free Surface Model

BY : CHAM Consultancy Team - N P Waterson
- P J Phelps

FOR : Demonstration Case

DATE : 1990

PHOENICS Version : 1.5.3

### DETAILS :

- Two-Dimensional, Transient flow
- Cylindrical-Polar computational grid

### NOTES :

- Simulation describes the catastropic failure of a tank of liquid.
- A column of liquid collapses. The resulting wave impinges on a
containment wall.
- This containment wall is represented by blockages
- Free surface modelled using the Scalar Equation Method

Following PHOTON PLOTS show the evolution of the free surface with time
