Sloshing flow in ship tanks is excited by ship motions, but it affects the ship motions in reverse. This paper focuses on the motion responses of the ship in waves with consideration of coupled effects with sloshing in tanks. A three-dimensional panel method in time-domain is applied to solve the ship motion problem, and the sloshing tanks are solved by commercial CFD software simultaneously. Experiments were carried out on a SL175 ship and good agreement is obtained.
