Default Circular cylinder drag at high Re

Posts: n/a
What's the drag coefficient for circular cylinder at high Reynolds numbers (i.e. >1.0E6)? In most books it's plotted only to critical Reynolds number. It can be seen that for higher Re it grows to something about 0.4, but what's the exact value?

Thanks in advance!
