Abstract : A perturbation expansion is formulated for the three dimensional, nonlinear, acoustic-wave equation with dissipative term describing the viscous and thermal energy losses encountered in a cylindrical cavity. The theoretical results show that nonlinear effects in sloshing modes are strongly suppressed. (Author)
