Abstract

In steel rolling mills lubrication oil is stored in large holding tanks. These tanks maintain the temperature and de-aerate the oil before being re-applied. To represent an actual talk, a one-fifth scale model is used for experimental purposes. There is concern that the test tank is not an accurate scale model. The purpose of this project is to analyze the current test tank to determine how accurately the one-fifth scaled tank represents a real tank.
