This research presents an experimental investigation on hydro-elasticity in sloshing experiment. Two models were tested. One of the models is ordinary, which is considered to be rigid wall made of plexi-glass. The other model has a flexible wall made of stainless steel. The two models were operated with identical excitation so that the influence of the elasticity can be detected. Four different filling levels were tested. The magnitude of excitation was 10% of the model longitudinal length. The models were operated only in surge motion. The models were tested with several excitation frequencies. The pressures were measured at 12 locations. It was shown that the effect of hydro-elasticity increases the magnitude of impact pressures.
