Abstract—The results of an investigation involving the use of mechanical systems for modeling the dynamics of a tanker truck carrying Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids are presented. The viscosity effect of a liquid on its temperature under oscillations is analyzed. The reasons for unstable movement of tanks under braking are explained. The optimal baffle design determined based on an analysis of energy dissipation in a single cycle of oscillations is presented. 

Index Terms—road tanker, computer modeling, liquid oscillations, equivalent models, baffles, energy dissipation
