The motion of a fluid contained in a cylindrical tank driven laterally to its axis is analyzed in terms of a combination of surface waves and a two-dimensional combined vortex. Nonlinearities are introduced by analogy with the motions of a set of spherical pendulums. The results of theory and experiment agree within the limits of experimental error and the approximations of the theory.
