The same rectangular tank used in the previous test is subjected to strong ground excitations. The excitation has 0.16 second period and given by
A finite element mesh that consists of liquid elements is used. Figures (4.7) and (4.8) shows a comparison of the liquid response to the strong ground motion with that obtained from Ref. . Figure (4.9) shows the liquid mesh during the time history analysis.
