In this paper, the governing equations which consider dynamic fluid-structure interaction, modal coupling in both axial and circumferential directions, and dynamic buckling are derived. The various pressure components acting on the shell wall due to a seismic event are also analyzed. The matrix equation of motion for liquid-filled shells is obtained through a Galerkin/Finite Element discretization procedure. The modal coupling among the various combinations of axial and circumferential modes are identified with a particular reference to the fluid-structure system under seismic excitation. Finally, the equations for the dynamic stability analysis of liquid-filled shells are presented.
