In this study, the free vibration of partially fluid-filled functionally graded material (FGM) cylindrical shells with arbitrary boundary conditions has been investigated using the Rayleigh-Ritz method. The analysis has been carried out with strain-displacement relations from Love’s thin shell theory and the contained fluid is assumed irrotational, incompressible and inviscid. The Rayleigh-Ritz method is based on the energy parameters, so after determining the kinetic and potential energies of FGM shell filled with fluid, the eigenvalue problem has been obtained. To demonstrate the validity and accuracy of the obtained theoretical results, comparison has been made with the previous published results and also with the finite element results for the empty and partially fluid-filled shells. Finally, the effects of fluid level and power-law exponent on natural frequencies of partially fluid-filled FGM shells have been investigated.
