It is proposed to investigate in this paper the damped vibrations of an incompressible liquid contained in a deformable tank. A linearized formulation describing the small movements of the system is presented. At first, a diagonal damping is introduced in the reduced equations of the hydroelastic sloshing problem. We obtain a nonclassically damped coupled system with a damping matrix that is not symmetric. Then, by projecting the system onto its complex modes, the frequency and time responses for different type of loads are built. A numerical application is illustrated on a test case.
