In this paper, the equal-norm multiple-scale Trefftz method combined with the implicit Lie-group scheme is applied to solve the two-dimensional nonlinear sloshing problem with baffles. When considering solving sloshing problems with baffles by using boundary integral methods, degenerate geometry and problems of numerical instability are inevitable. To avoid numerical instability, the multiple-scale characteristic lengths are introduced into T-complete basis functions to efficiently govern the high-order oscillation disturbance. Again, the numerical noise propagation at each time step is eliminated by the vector regularization method and the group-preserving scheme. A weighting factor of the group-preserving scheme is introduced into a linear system and then used in the initial and boundary value problems (IBVPs) at each time step. More importantly, the parameters of the algorithm, namely, the T-complete function, dissipation factor, and time step, can obtain a linear relationship. The boundary noise interference and energy conservation are successfully overcome, and the accuracy of the boundary value problem is also improved. Finally, benchmark cases are used to verify the correctness of the numerical algorithm. The numerical results show that this algorithm is efficient and stable for nonlinear two-dimensional sloshing problems with baffles.
