About the Authors
  • The problem of liquid sloshing in moving or stationary containers remains of great concern to aerospace, civil, and nuclear engineers; physicists; designers of road tankers and ship tankers; and mathematicians. Beginning with the fundamentals of liquid sloshing theory, this book takes the reader systematically from basic theory to advanced analytical and experimental results in a self-contained and coherent format. The book is divided into four sections. Part I deals with the theory of linear liquid sloshing dynamics; Part II addresses the nonlinear theory of liquid sloshing dynamics, Faraday waves, and sloshing impacts; Part III presents the problem of linear and nonlinear interaction of liquid sloshing dynamics with elastic containers and supported structures; and Part IV considers the fluid dynamics in spinning containers and microgravity sloshing. This book will be invaluable to researchers and graduate students in mechanical and aeronautical engineering, designers of liquid containers, and applied mathematicians.

    • Deals with almost every aspect of liquid sloshing dynamics
    • Presents liquid sloshing effects on space vehicles, storage tanks, road vehicle tanks and ships and elevated water towers under ground motion
    • Cites over 2,600 references

    'This book will be invaluable to researchers and graduate students in mechanical and aeronautical engineering, designers of liquid containers and applied mathematicians. Engineering Designer

    '…a remarkable and comprehensive contribution to sloshing dynamics… The reviewer highly recommends this book for graduates and Ph. D students in this field, as well as researchers and engineers in various industries that use storage tanks, because it contains not only original aspects but also acts as a tutorial through its discussions of how analytical results compare with measurements. It represents an important addition to the fluid-structure interaction bookshelf.' Journal of Sound and Vibration

    Raouf A. Ibrahim, Wayne State University, Michigan
    Raouf A. Ibrahim is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Wayne State University. From 1963 till 1971, he worked as a research engineer at the Aerospace Research Center of rockets industry in Egypt, then gained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Edinburgh in 1974. From 1976 to 1979, he worked as a Senior Research Specialist at Sakr Factory in Cairo and worked as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Cairo University. In 1979, he moved to the United States and worked at Shaker Research Corporation, before joining Texas Tech University in 1980 as Assistant, Associate, and then full Professor. In 1987, he joined Wayne State University and continued his research activities in nonlinear random vibration, liquid sloshing dynamics, friction-induced vibration, and flutter of aeroelastic structures. In 1994 he was named the Arthur Carr Professor of Engineering and in 1995 he was awarded the Board of Governors Outstanding Professor Award. He has published more than ninety papers in refereed journals, and a research monograph entitled Parametric Random Vibration (1985). He is a Fellow of ASME and Associate Fellow of AIAA.
