  • Abstract

    We consider a 2d model for a rigid body with a cavity completely filled by a liquid and suspended by means of an elastic beam. The liquid is assumed to be “almost-homogeneous” and incompressible inviscid. From the equations of the system beam-container-liquid, we deduce the variational equation of the problem, and then two operatorial equations in a suitable Hilbert space. We show that the spectrum of the system is real and consists of a countable set of eigenvalues and an essential continuous spectrum filling an interval. The existence and uniqueness of the associated evolution problem are then proved using the weak formulation.
