© JVE INTERNATIONAL LTD.Sloshing problems are highly non-linear problems and obtaining an accurate solution with numerical simulations is difficult and requires long simulation times. For this reason, sloshing experiments are important to understand the sloshing characteristics of liquid and to validate the theoretical and numerical studies in this field. In this study, an experimental setup which can input sine or random inputs to a sloshing system is designed and verified for different input amplitudes and frequencies. Then, the effect of vibration frequency and amplitude on the amplitudes of wave height and sloshing force are investigated. The effect of base motion frequency and the sloshing natural frequency on sloshing characteristics is also investigated.
