In the assessment of 2D numerical simulations of liquid sloshing in partially filled membrane-type cargo tanks of LNG Carriers high pressure impacts and also particularly low pressures have been identified. One high pressure impact at low filling levels and one sloshing impact leading to particularly low pressures at high filling levels are studied in greater detail. The results of these investigations are presented and conclusions are drawn with respect to the underlying physics of the two phenomena.
