Sloshing is the low frequency oscillation of a liquid in a partially full container. Only a limited number of attempts is reported in the literature to control sloshing. Amongst these limited attempts, no effort can be found to employ the flexibility of liquid containers to suppress sloshing. Here, progress is reported of an ongoing research program at Victoria University to determine the critical design parameters of flexible containers to achieve effective control. Numerical predictions as well as experimental observations are presented.
