Description

Liquid sloshing is an important phenomenon in many applications such as spacecraft navigation, ship transportation, and inland storage. In most cases, the sloshing phenomenon causes adverse effects by generating large sloshing impact loads and overturning moments, which either induce local damages to structures or trigger global stabilities of vessels. On the other hand, the sloshing waves can also be utilized to dampen energies of undesirable vibrations of a structure.

The accurate prediction and evaluation of sloshing-induced adverse effects are of paramount significance for the safety design and operation of aerospace/marine vessels and some inland structures. The knowledge gain in this field will further stimulate inventions of sloshing mitigation and sloshing damper devices. Therefore, substantial research has been devoted to examining the sloshing phenomenon. Due to the high nonlinearity and multi-physics coupling (e.g. water-air, water-solid structures), however, many problems in sloshing require further investigation. Under the background of global climate change, the extreme ocean waves are projected to increase in frequency and intensity. This further necessitates the reliable prediction of sloshing dynamics in the sea environment.

In this context, this Special Issue aims to gather the latest developments of advanced technologies in predicting/evaluating sloshing-induced loads and structural responses and their coupling effects. Review articles that portray the state-of-the-art development of relevant topics are also welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Numerical and experimental modelling of sloshing waves
  • Breaking waves and aerated flows
  • Wave structure interaction and hydroelasticity
  • Probability analysis and characterization of sloshing-induced slamming loads
  • Data-driven enhanced sloshing prediction
  • Conceptualisation and investigation of sloshing mitigation
  • Sloshing damper devices
