Abstract

Free surface movement of water in a rotating, laterally oscillating cylindrical container was qualitatively investigated. Time-dependent dynamic pressure was measured instead of free surface displacement. The swirling direction was determined by forcing the frequency and rotating direction of the cylindrical container. The swirling direction was opposite to that of the rotating cylindrical container when the forcing frequency was low, whereas the crest of the free surface swirled in the same direction as that of the rotating cylindrical container when the forcing frequency greatly increased. Unstable swirling occurred when swirling direction changes, but it disappeared as the rotating frequency increased.
