Abstract

One of the problems facing automotive fuel tank designers today is that of premature shut-off during the filling process. Premature shut-off occurs when the fuel dispensing nozzle stops before the automotive fuel tank is completely full. A simplified lumped parameter model has been developed in order to predict the pressures and flow rates associated with fuel tank filling.
