The vibrational power flow from a line circumferential cosine harmonic force into an infinite elastic circular cylindrical shell filled with fluid is studied. To analyze the response of the shell, an integrated numerical method along the pure imaginary axis of the complex wavenumber domain is used. The results are discussed for a steel shell filled with fluid and vibrating in the n = 0, 1 and 2 circumferential modes. In order to evaluate the effect of the fluid, the results of a shell filled with fluid are compared with those of a shell in vacuo.
