Pipelines carry fluids important to modern civilization. Many cross seismically active regions where they may be subjected to damage from earthquake induced ground shaking. The pipe motion may be in the lateral or axial directions, or both. The current note is an attempt to answer the question of fluid pipe interaction when the only mechanism for coupling is the fluid viscosity. As such, the results are not applicable to situations where frequent bens or changes in cross section give rise to coupling mechanisms related to motion normal to the surface.
