Analysis of dynamic response of a fluid-conveying riser is an important aspect in subsea production system. In the present paper, dynamic response of a pinned-pinned riser subject to external fluid force was solved by the generalized integral transform technique (GITT). A nonlinear wake oscillator models was used to represent the cross-flow and in-line force acting on the riser, leading to a coupled system of second-order Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). The GITT approach was used to transform the system of PDEs to a system of Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), which was numerically solved by using the Adams-Moulton and Gear method (DIVPAG) developed by the International Mathematics and Statistics Library (IMSL). Numerical results were presented for comparison to those given by the numerical and experimental results, allowing a critical evaluation of the technique performance. The influence of conveying fluid velocity and mean top tension were evaluated to show that they should not be negligible in numerical simulation of Vortex-Induced Vibration of a long flexible riser.
