Slosh Characteristics of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs)

Engineering modeling and road testing were undertaken to ascertain whether the slosh characteristics of IBCs aggregated to 1,000 gallons or more are similar to a single or compartmented cargo tank of the same capacity. The results of this testing were considered in determining whether there was a need to revise the existing rule on tank vehicle endorsements.
