In this validation sloshing simulation, a partially filled tank is rolling with a prescribed angular motion. The impact pressure is compared with the experiment. Different fluids and different tank thicknesses are tried to capture the 3D effects. Warning : the mesh is fine, 8 CPUs or more are recommended for this case.
