The stability of a fluid contained in a circular cylindrical tank with a flat, flexible bottom under a periodic axial excitation is studied. A variational approach is formulated. An approximate solution results in a pair of coupled ordinary differential equations with periodic coefficients. A method of handling the stability of the solutions of such a system of equations is presented. Numerical results are discussed.
