Sloshing behavior due to near-fault type and earthquake excitations of a fluid in a tank having a highly deformable elastic structure in the middle was investigated experimentally and numerically in this paper. In the numerical model, fluid was simulated with smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and structure was simulated with the finite element method (FEM). The coupling was satisfied with contact mechanics. The δ-SPH scheme was adapted to lower the numerical oscillations. The proposed fluid-structure interaction (FSI) method can simulate the violent fluid-structure interaction problem successfully. The effects of near-fault type and earthquake excitations on free-surfaces of fluid and the elastic structure are presented. View Full-Text
