The dynamic behavior of a magnetic fluid in a laterally oscillated rectangular container was studied experimentally. Frequency responses of magnetic fluid-container system were measured under vertical nonuniform magnetic fields. Relations between the resonant frequency and the applied magnetic field were discussed, and experimental results were characterized by Froude number with consideration of the magnetic effect. Since the apparent viscosity of the magnetic fluid increases with magnetic field, its effect on sloshing phenomenon was examined in detail. Internal pressure on the wall and displacement of surface waves were measured simultaneously.
