Abstract
We report in this work a numerical analysis of the sloshing of a squared tank partially filled with a domestic vegetable oil. The tank is subject to controlled motions with a shake table. The free-surface evolution is captured using ultrasonic sensors and an image capturing method. Only confirmed data within the error range is reported. Filling depth, imposed amplitude and frequency effects on the sloshing wave pattern are specifically evaluated. The experiments also reveal the nonlinear wave be...
