Abstract : The variational method is used to determine the natural frequencies of a cylindrical shell containing a compressible fluid and submerged in another compressible fluid. Results of the analysis show that for thick shells, the mass densities of the fluids significantly affect the natural frequencies. The internal pressure influences the frequencies of thin shells but has little or not effect on thick shells. The length of the shell is found to be the most effective frequency control parameter.
