Liquid sloshing is associated with various engineering problems. Many studies have been performed since 1950s. A comprehensive review on the study and advance of numerical simulation of liquid sloshing, with emphasis on free surface tracking techniques, has been presented in this paper. At present, several methods can be used to simulate liquid sloshing numerically. However, each method has its own advantages and disadvantages and it should be applied according to characteristics of practical engineering problems. In the future, further work should be placed on developing more effective techniques for treating very large amplitude sloshing problems, namely, for simulating overturning, breaking and merging of free surface, for predicting transient impact loads pressure of sloshing.
