This paper studies theoretically the dynamical behavior of a flexible slender cylinder in pulsating axial flow. The dynamics of the system in steady, unperturbed flow are examined first. For various sets of boundary conditions the eigenfrequencies of the system at any given flow velocity are determined, and the critical flow velocities are established, beyond which buckling (divergence) would occur. The behavior of the system in pulsating flow is examined next, establishing the existence of parametric resonances. The effects of the mean flow velocity, boundary conditions, dissipative forces, and virtual (hydrodynamic) mass on the extent of the parametric instability zones are then discussed.
