In this paper, the experiments on a 1:25 scale model of a trapezoidal forward compartment, conducted to find cargo-sloshing pressures due to a ship's pitching motion, are described. Transducers were used to find the dynamic and static pressures on the tank walls and the tank top. The experiments show that large pressures occur as a result of a pitching motion of resonant period, especially at the corners and top of such a converging tank. Pressures are generally larger at the fore end, the maximum pressures occurring at slightly higher periods than the experimental natural period. /Author/
