In both, the case of flow around a single cylinder is discussed prior to treatment of rows of cylinders and tube banks.

You can find a number of paper out there which present the result of a flow around a fixed cylinder. For example if u want experimental result, there is this "Experiments on the Flow past a circular Cylinder at Low Reynolds Number" by D.J.Tritton. This paper only give u result for low reynold number, <= 100 If I'm not wrong.. Good luck!
