Tank and Dyke Wall

08/11/2017 11:36 AM

What is the calculation, suppose that I have 4 m tank and at ht. of 2m there is hole so as per calculation the maximum distance covered by liquid to touch the ground from tank is 4m so if I locate dyke wall between tank and liquid touch the ground point at some distance so what is the distance between tank and dyke wall ?

1. Don't shout.

2. Dike ≠ dyke.

The distance should be sufficient to contain all the liquid that can possibly leak from the tank.

The math is up to you.

How big is the hole?

What is the viscosity of the fluid?

What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen sparrow?

Good luck with your quest.

The stream will emerge with a horizontal velocity that corresponds to the height of the fluid above the height of the hole. Then the stream will fall at a vertical velocity corresponding to the time from emergence from the hole. This results in a parabolic trajectory which determines the height of the dike at various distances from the tank wall. (Add some freeboard to prevent splashing over the dike.)
