Governing equations are developed for the nonlinear response of an infinite, elastic, circular cylindrical shell submerged in an infinite fluid medium and excited by a transverse, transient acoustic wave. These equations derive from circumferential Fourier-series decomposition of the field quantities appearing in appropriate energy functionals, and from application of the “residual potential formulation” for rigorous treatment of the fluid-structure interaction. Extensive numerical results are presented that provide understanding of the phenomenology involved.
