Forced vibration tests for a spent fuel storage pool of nuclear facilities [1] were conducted for the purpose of determining sloshing suppression effects. The devices reported in this paper are cantilever-type water restraint plates. They reduce sloshing and also prevent overflow of water from the pool. Parameters examined in the experimental tests were the installation height levels, lengths and shapes of the water restraint plates. The most effective installation conditions of these water restraint plates were found through the tests.
