A method of analysis is introduced to study the dynamic stability characteristics of fluid-filled shells. The governing equations including dynamic fluid-structure interaction are derived using a Galerkin/Finite Element approach. The induced modal coupling in circumferential and axial directions is identified. The importance of geometrical imperfection is emphasized in the derivation of the set of equations which govern the dynamic stability of fluid-filled shells.
