This article describes an investigation of hydroelastic instability in a uniformly curved pipe containing a flowing fluid. It is found that divergence occurs with pinned-pinned and fixed-fixed end conditions. The angular length of the pipe is found to influence the critical velocity and the mode shape at instability.
