Results of several research programs to investigate sloshing in Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) Carriers are presented. The history of slosh-related problems in LNG carriers is discussed including a listing of recorded tank damages from LNG sloshing. Sloshing considerations for different tank designs are also presented. In addition theoretical and experimental studies for determining liquid response characteristics for different tank geometries and fill levels are delineated. The scaling of LNG slosh loads from model data to full scale is also discussed and available full scale load measurements are presented. Areas requiring further investigation are also enumerated as well as design implications from the studies to date.
