Abstract

Sloshing is a phenomenon that occurs when a liquid with a free surface is severely agitated in a liquid storage container. In an axisymmetric container, even though the excitation is lateral, the liquid oscillates with rotational movement around the central axis of the container. This phenomenon is called swirling and may be unstable swirling or stable swirling. We measure the velocity profile of a sloshing magnetic fluid using an ultrasonic Doppler velocimetry method called UVP, and examine the relationship between internal velocity profiles and swirling phenomena, in particular, stable swirling phenomena. We calculated power spectra from the velocity data using a fast Fourier transform and observed that the most dominant peak in the power spectrum moved to higher frequencies as the magnetic field intensity was increased, whereas a derived peak at a lower frequency moved to lower frequencies as the magnetic field intensity was increased.
