This paper determines natural and resonant frequencies of radial–circular oscillations (waves) on the nonviscous, incompressible fluid partially and evenly filling similar compartments in a rotor that has the cylindrical chamber, solid radial baffles, and constant angular velocity. It is assumed as follows: influence of the gravity and surface tension is negligibly small as compared to the centrifugal effect; configuration of dynamic equilibrium (unperturbed motion) of fluid is an annular rigid body rotation; and the fluid motion perturbed by small lateral deflections of the rotor does not depend on the axial coordinate (plane motion).
