DYNAMIC SLOSH INDUCED LOADS ON LIQUID CARGO TANK BULKHEADS

The dynamic loads from liquid sloshing in ship cargo tanks are discussed including a description of the types of sloshing phenomena and resulting pressures and forces that can occur in cargo tanks. A review of both experimental and theoretical studies for establishing resonant sloshing conditions and tank loading is given. Also, a review of recorded ship damages is presented along with recommended guidelines and criteria for designing liquid cargo tanks to withstand the dynamic loads attributable to liquid sloshing.
