This paper presents a new approach for the vibration analysis of cylindrical vessels containing fluid. A new formulation using artificial spring systems at the junction of the shell and end cap was established with the inclusion of the structure fluid coupling. The method was shown to be well adapted to handle combined structures with the presence of a fluid. Numerical results showed the accuracy of the method as well as the fluid effects on the dynamic behavior of the structure.
