Abstract

Liquid sloshing is any motion of free liquid surface inside its container. Sloshing may generate hydrodynamics loads that can be dangerous to structural integrity and stability of moving containers. In this study, liquid sloshing in containers with 50% and 90% fill level were investigated. The containers with liquid inside were excited sinusoidally by using an electrodynamics shaker while the free liquid surface level change was captured by using high speed camera. The free liquid surface amplitude difference obtained for containers with 50% and 90% fill level were compared. Results show that sloshing is more vigorous in containers with 50% fill level compared to 90% fill level. Liquid transportation should be done at an almost full fill level to minimize sloshing.
