MARIN has been involved in several studies where the sloshing of liquids inside tanks was affecting the ship motions. However, LNG sloshing may cause a different roll response due to the dynamic loads inside the tank. More specifically, the period at which the maximum roll response occurs changes due to the internal LNG waves.
