This work aims to model long-term simulations of sway-sloshing motion in a partially filled rectangular tank with different water depths and enforced motion frequencies. The lateral motion frequency of the tank is chosen so as to coincide with the lowest theoretical natural frequency for the corresponding beam of the tank and initial depth of water reserve. A truly meshless method, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is used to discretize and solve the governing equations. It is shown that numerical results of the proposed SPH scheme are in good agreement with experimental and numerical findings of the literature.
