Sloshing of a magnetic fluid in a laterally vibrated cylindrical container subject to a non-uniform vertical magnetic field was examined. Internal velocity profiles were measured using ultrasound Doppler velocimetry. The effect of the magnetic field on the resonant frequency of the fluid-container system was examined and the results were compared with theoretical results. The second and third peaks of the power spectra of velocity shifted to lower frequencies as the magnetic field was increased. It was observed that these derived frequency peaks were connected with swirling in the cylindrical container.
