The objective of the present work is to develop analytical modelling of an unsteady fluid flow through an elastic tube. The fluid is considered to be newtonian and incompressible. The cylindrical tube wall boundaries are isotropic. The study provides a review of recent modelling aimed at understanding the effects of fluid parameters over the elastic tube wall behaviour. First of all, the fluid flow is analysed following an asymptotic approach according to a large Reynolds number and a small aspect radio. Second of all, the wall has been assumed to be a thin shell, which generates a small axisymmetric vibration. The mathematical model is developed according the thin shell theory. The dynamic behaviour of the tube wall is represented and discussed.
