Drag of circular cylinders for a wide range of Reynolds numbers and Mach numbers

Forrest E. Gowen, Edward W. Perkins
Jun 1952

Pressure distributions around circular cylinders placed perpendicular to the stream for subsonic and supersonic flow conditions have been obtained. Drag coefficients calculated from these wind-tunnel tests and from transonic free-flight tests are presented.
