Shallow water theory is used to describe the sloshing and severe wave breaking action of water contained in a rigid nutation damper undergoing a coupled horizontal/rotational motion. Results from a simple numerical procedure are shown to agree with limited experimental data. They also demonstrate that a nutation damper’s rotation promotes a hydraulic jump that beneficially enhances damping.
