With the trend towards offshore LNG production and offloading, sloshing of LNG in partially filled tanks has become an important research subject for the offshore industry. LNG sloshing may induce impact pressures on the containment system and may affect the motions of the LNG carrier.So far, LNG sloshing has been studied mainly using model experiments with an oscillation tank. However, the development of Navier-Stokes solvers with a detailed handling of the free surface allows the numerical simulation of sloshing. It should be investigated, however, how accurate the results of this type of simulations are for this complex flow problem.
