The purpose of this paper is to study the seismic response of a base-isolated, concrete rectangular liquid-storage structure (CRLSS) under small-amplitude sloshing. In this study, the three-dimensional FEM of the base isolated CRLSS is established by using ADINA. The concrete material is assumed to be nonlinear and elastic, and the criterion for the small amplitude sloshing is defined to determine the seismic response of a base-isolated CRLSS under different conditions. The results show that when small-amplitude sloshing occurs and the nonlinear elasticity of the concrete material is considered, the displacement of wallboard, the height of liquid sloshing and the equivalent stress are increased with the increase in the earthquake intensity when comparing the same liquid height and different intensities of a bidirectional earthquake. The liquid height is found to affect the seismic response of the base-isolated CRLSS. The lower the liquid height is, the larger the equivalent stress is, and the greater the displacement of the wallboard and the amplitude of the liquid sloshing are.
