The book is a unique compilation of experimental data, theoretical models, and computer simulations of flow past circular cylinders. The circular cylinder is the most widely used shape in engineering making appearances in aeronautical, chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, nuclear,off-shore, and wind engineering. The book will be useful to postgraduates and practising engineers in those fields of study and application.
