The work presents the possible ways of tank body design modernization that reduces the fluid sloshing impact on the vibrations and stability of the tank as well as the strength of its design. Some obtained results of finite element computations of the liquid flow in the tanks with baffles and the loading of the baffles and tank body are listed.


tank truck, tank, walls, the dissipation of energy, stress-strain state
