The effect of steady viscous forces on vibrations of shell with internal and annular flow has been considered by using the time-mean Navier-Stokes equations. The model developed by Amabili & Garziera (2000), capable of simulating shells with non-uniform boundary conditions, added masses and partial elastic bed, has been extended to include non-uniform prestress. The effect of steady viscous forces has been added to the inviscid flow formulation considered by Amabili & Garziera (2002). The computer code DIVA has been developed by using the model developed in the present study. It has been validated by comparison with available results for shells with uniform constraints and has been used to study shells with non-uniform constraints and added lumped masses.
