Natural frequencies and the thresholds for loosing the stability of thin-walled cylindrical shell conveying by flowing fluid are theoretically studied. Potential flow theory for fluid and 3D theory for thin shells are used. The shells of finite length are considered for the different case of boundary conditions at the edges of the shell, and their influence on the critical flow velocities for flutter are demonstrated. The fundamental importance of boundary conditions considered for fixing the edges of the cylindrical shell of finite length is shown. When the clamped - simply supported boundary conditions are assumed, the critical flow velocity for flutter is very low, even if the energy dissipation due to the fluid viscosity was taken into account.
