In this paper, a convenient modal analysis method for the linear coupled vibration of a container that is partially filled with a fluid is introduced. This problem is important for various reasons, such as stability analysis. The fluid-structure interactions in an elastic tank with an incompressible liquid are assumed to produce small vibrations. Reduced symmetric finite element equations of the system are acquired according to the component mode synthesis method. Considering that the liquid satisfies the same governing equation as steady heat conduction, general programs can be used to calculate the mass matrix and stiffness matrix of the coupled system. Then, modal analysis of the liquid container using general software, e.g., MSC Nastran, that ensures accuracy and stableness in the process, is applied to demonstrate that this method can determine the modal frequency in a fluid-structure coupled system.
