The increase of ship dimensions and the introduction of LNG ships, which differ considerably from other ship types, not only as far as constructional details are concerned but also in operating conditions, are the two main factors which have led naval architects to study liquid motion in tanks more closely than ever before. This article describes the computer calculations used to obtain predictions for liquid motion in tanks, thus making it possible to investigate the optimum shape and dimensions of a tank for a given vessel. The example incorporated in this article is a forward tank of a 150,000 cubic meter capacity LNG ship.
