The dynamic behavior of the cylindrical shell with uniform flow is formulated by the finite element method. The dynamics of the shell is based on Donnell’s theory and the fluid in cylindrical shell is considered satisfying the Helmholtz equation. The effective thickness of fluid is calculated according to the circumferential modes and the frequencies. An estimation of the FRF (frequency response function) of the shell with taking into consideration of the coupled effects of the internal fluid is presented. These results are compared with the results considering fluid satisfying Laplace equation. The influence of fluid velocity on the FRF is also discussed.
