In this paper, we apply our two-phase Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method for numerically simulating the sloshing phenomenon with varying ratio of densities between the liquid and gas. This method has recently been developed and validated on several benchmark problems. Here, we consider a closed rectangular tank subject to translational oscillation along its longitudinal axis. Simulations are conducted for water sloshing in an atmosphere of air, and with denser gas SF 6 + N 2. Global and local features of the flow are analyzed to show the effect of density ratio in numerically simulating the sloshing phenomenon.

|Other||The Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference has grown steadily from its beginning at the University of Western Australia in 1962. The conference series has traditionally covered the broad field of fluid mechanics in all engineering and scientific disciplines. It provides a forum for presentation of papers in all aspects of fundamental and applied fluid mechanics.|
