In this paper, the dynamic stability of a rotating cantilever pipe conveying fluid with a crack is investigated by the numerical method. That is, the influence of the rotating angular velocity, mass ratio and crack severity on the critical flow velocity for flutter instability of system are studied. The equations of motion of rotating cantilever pipe are derived by using extended Hamilton's principle. The crack section of pipe is represented by a local flexibility matrix connecting two undamaged pipe segments. The crack is assumed to be in the first mode of fracture and always opened during the vibrations. Generally, the critical flow velocity for flutter is proportional to the rotating angular velocity of a pipe. Also, the critical flow velocity and stability maps of the rotating pipe system for the variation each parameter are obtained.
