Sloshing of Liquid in Partially Filled Container An Experimental Study

Full text: PDF


This paper deals with the experimental studies of sloshing of liquid in partially filled container subjected to external excitation. An experimental set-up is designed to study the behavior of liquid sloshing in partially filled prismatic container. At every instant of time, slosh amplitude is computed at specified location with the help of capacitance probe. The resulting slosh heights for various excitation frequencies and amplitudes are compared with the data available in literature. It is observed that the numerical results are closer to that obtained experimentally and little variations in the data are due to ineptness of the experimental set-up and the input parameters.
