Solving Vessel Equations: A Better Way

Irregularly shaped vessels present challenges for determining liquid volumes. New tools can help

Sasha Gurke Knovel Corp.

Precise volume-determination equations are readily available for common vessel shapes. But what if you are using a vessel that is a vertical cylinder with a hemispherical top and bottom? Or, what if you are working with a horizontal elliptical vessel with concave heads? No matter the type of vessel you are working with, chemical engineers need to account for the liquids within these irregular shapes to calculate the volume properly...
