Force Window and sloshing mass

I am simulating sloshing in cylindrical tanks with FLOW3D.
The oscillation is linear in x-direction. I have saved the forces in x-direction with Force Window and want to calculate the mass which is sloshing in the container and making the force on the tank wall.
I have also the linear acceleration, but my calculated mass is higher then the total fluid mass in the container.
Here the data:
linear acceleration a=0,154 m/s^2
calculated mass= 21,42 kg
total mass in container= 9,2 kg
The calculated sloshing mass is higher then the total mass, thats impossible.
I need help.
Does anybody knows where my mistake is?
Thank you so much.
