English term or phrase: head
(trailer tanker)

What's the correct word in Spanish for "head" of a water tank? Please cite the source if available.

Context: there shall be one pair of lights mounted on the rear head of the tank near the top.

Thank you.

De acuerdo con los diversos contextos, en efecto, se trata de las paredes del tanque, así que esta propuesta es correcta.

Mil gracias a todos.

Es posible que se refiera a la columna de agua


Explanation:
The head of a container with liquid es la presión causada por la altura del nivel del líquido en el tanque. Esto es la presión que tendrá en el fondo del tanque. Esta presión es proporcional a la altura del nivel y a la densidad del líquido . En el caso del agua, la densidad es 1. El head, o presión hidrostática (agua), se mide en metros o pies o pulgadas. Espero que sea de ayuda.
