Abstract
In this study, the two-dimensional sloshing of water in a stepped based tank partially filled was analyzed using an arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian adaptive fixed-mesh method and including the Smagorinsky turbulence model. The numerical model is verified by contrasting the predictions made by the model with experimental results. The tank was subjected to controlled one-directional motion imposed using a shake table. The free surface evolution was followed using ultrasonic sensors, and a high-spe...
