Pressure Forces on a Circular Cylinder in Cross Flow

  • C. Norberg
Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


Mean pressure forces have been measured at Reynolds numbers from about 100 to 3 × 105 (fluctuating pressure forces from about 650). In the range Re = 103 − 104 there was a change in the sectional r.m.s. lift coefficient by about one order of magnitude while the corresponding change in the mean pressure drag coefficient was 20%.
