Propagation of free harmonic waves, in a periodically supported infinite pipe, has been studied. The presence of the Coriolis term in the equation of motion renders the phase velocity different for the positive and the negative going waves. Hence no classical normal modes (in the sense of standing modes) exist. Natural frequencies of a periodically supported finite pipe have been obtained by using the wave approach. The response of the infinite pipe to a convected harmonic pressure field has also been obtained. Owing to the difference in the phase velocities of the positive and the negative going free waves, the coincidence frequency depends on the direction of the convected loading. The static buckling or the divergence instability of such pipes has also been considered from the wave approach.
