The problem of liquid sloshing (i.e. the motion of free liquid surface inside a moving or stationary container) remains of great importance to aerospace, civil and nuclear engineers, physicists, and designers of ships and tankers. The purpose of this book is to present in a coherent form the basic liquid sloshing theories and results developed in different applications. Each chapter includes an extensive literature review followed by analytical description and the main results. The book is divided into four parts. Part I deals with the linear liquid sloshing dynamics; Part II addresses the mono-linear theory of liquid sloshing, Faraday waves, and sloshing impacts; Part III presents linear and nonlinear interactions of liquid sloshing in elastic containers and supported structures; and Part IV considers the fluid dynamics in spinning containers and microgravity sloshing.
