This paper reviews the problem of the vibration of fluid loaded structures with one dimensional disorder. There are two aspects which are important in understanding the behavior of such systems: the nature of the fluid loading and the effects arising from irregularity. These two areas of investigation have been pursued simultaneously by the structural acoustics and condensed matter physics communities, and only recently have attempts been made to use the results from both fields. The key results from these areas which have been employed in the analysis of disordered fluid loaded structures are reviewed, and the recent research results in this area are described.
