Sloshing in tanks carrying LNG, LPG and petroleum is an important phenomenon as dynamic pressure arises from sloshing can destroy the containing tanks. So it is vital to consider this phenomenon in design stages of carriers. The governing equations in fluid flow are conservation of mass and momentum. Modeling of free surface flow in tank needs a suitable tool. One of the most powerful tools to model the free surface is VOF method. Employing additional transport equation together with conservation of mass and momentum enable us to follow the free surface changes. A computer code was developed to evaluate sloshing problem. This code could calculate dynamic pressures exerted on walls of the containers. The model was validated using experimental data.
