modeling an industrial tank

Post by Dingding » Wed Oct 19, 2016 11:16 am

i am not very practical with opensees, I need to model a cylindrical steel tank.
I wanted to know if someone with more experience could give me some advice/example about it.
I must outline the tank with a simplified cantilever model.

The liquid mass will be divided into two masses, an impulsive and the other convective.

I do not know which properties give to the cantilever and how to outline the springs that give the two masses, the impulsive and convective efect

some advice?
