This article presents the experimental and theoretical results of the discharge and filling of water between two torispherical tanks connected in series at different heights, the model that was used was developed with equations reported in the literature for geometries of torispherical tanks and it was necessary to develop two more equations in the laboratory to calculate the discharge and fill volumetric flows for the tanks used. The unloading and filling model was obtained with transitory mass balances resulting in two simultaneous linear differential equations where the unloading and filling heights are related as a function of the operation time. The model was solved numerically, and the experimental results were compared against those of the proposed model, finally the transfer function for this system of interacting tanks was found.
Keywords: Transient mass balances in two atmospheric interacting tanks at different heights and equal torispherical geometries. The discharge and fill model of two interacting tanks as a function of time. The volumes of partially filled torispherical tanks. The transfer function of a pulse in the discharge pipe that affects the volumetric flow within the discharge tank.
