A Parametric Vehicle Fuel Tank Filling System Model 2007-01-1741

The purpose of this study is to present a parametric fuel tank filling model from first principles. The aim is to build a tool that can help with the initial tank layout, to make sure the design does not promote premature shut off. The governing equations of the model are detailed and results for a test case are presented. The model is based on a common set of parameters enabling it to be adapted to a set of design constrains. Additionally, the model is validated by experimental data where available and a sensitivity analysis on critical design parameters that promote premature shut off is performed.
