flow around a cylinder

I am searching data of a flow around a cylinder (for comparison). Do you know any good reference?

Re: flow around a cylinder
Thanks a lot. I have already found some of the posted titles.

Unfortunately the book "Flow Around Circular Cylinders" is very expensive!!! I am actually looking for papers or summaries to investigate the influence of different turbulence models. Unfortunately, I didn't find any inforamtion about it in the publications (Journal of Fluid Mechanics). Even velocities, geometrical data, temperatures are rare.

So, I would appreciate, if you have further ideas for me.

Re: flow around a cylinder

it sounds quite promising - but I am not sure if I will be able to access the Journals. If it isn't too much work for you it would be fantastic if you could send them to me by mail (mailto:

Hi ramp,

thanks a lot!!!! I just found your mail, that's why I didn't read the papers --> but I will.

Best regards, pxyz

Hey can any one from you 3 persons (Ramp, Mayo & Pxyz) forward this papers to me?

My email address is

I am also working on same topic"Flow around cylinder". I need some data to compare.

Thanks in Advance....
