Abstract : The equations for the forces, moments and surface wave forms for a conical tank (of 45 deg semi-vertex angle) being subjected to arbitrary horizontal, translational motions were obtained. The forces, moments and surface wave forms can be duplicated with the use of an equivalent pendulum system whose parameters, in terms of the fluid depth, are given. (Author)
