In this paper,2D violent sloshing flows are simulated by the CIP-combined and unified procedure (CCUP) method. The present CCUP scheme is based on the finite difference method and constraint-interpolation-profile (CIP) method. Freesurface flows are considered multiphase problems with air and water phases. The tangent of hyperbola for the interface capturing (THINC) scheme is applied to trace a free-surface profile. The numerical computation has been carried out for 2 smooth rectangular tanks,and the results are compared with experiment and other existing computational results. In this study,it is shown that the rational CIP(RCIP) provides better prediction of violent flows than the conventional CIP method, and that the present numerical method has a good potential of practical application for impact prediction.
