This paper opens a new horizon on the simulation of sloshing phenomena. One of the most popular Finite Volume methods called VOF (Volume Of Fluid) method is used for tracking the flow in containers. The algorithm is tested for different fluid elevations, physical conditions in different road curves and liquid properties. The method is then validated against an analytical and another numerical solution. These comparisons show that the VOF can effectively solve the sloshing problem for different fluids and a variety of physical and geometrical conditions.
