Abstract : Some results obtained from sloshing experiments with rigid model cylindrical tanks in translation, and having both flat and conical bottoms, are discussed and compared. On the basis of both total force and wall pressure distribution measurements, it is concluded that sloshing behavior in tanks with conical bottoms can be represented quite adequately by an 'equivalent' flat bottom (based on equal liquid volumes).
