Impulsive loads should be excited under nonlinear phenomena with free surface fluctuating severely such as sloshing and slamming. Estimating impulsive loads properly are important to recent numerical simulations. But it is still difficult to rely on the results of simulations perfectly because of the nonlinearity of the phenomena. In order to develop the algorithm of numerical simulations experimental results of nonlinear phenomena are needed. In this study an apparatus which can oscillate a tank by force was introduced in order to investigate impulsive pressure on the wall of the tank. This apparatus can oscillate it simultaneously towards 3 degrees of freedom with each phase differences. The impulsive pressure under the various combinations of oscillation direction was examined and the specific phase differences to appear the largest peak values of pressure were identified. Experimental results were verified through FFT analysis and statistical methods.
