Thereason for this is that while for the laminar boundary layer and the associated pressuredistribution tends to depend only on the cross-flow velocity, when transition to turbulent flow in theboundary layer has occurred the subsequent development and separation of the boundarylayer are adversely affected by the three dimensional nature of the turbulent wake flow. It cannot be used when Re is less that about 3 sinceroughness then has no significant effect on the flow regime. It is also importantto remember that the deterioration of a surface with time usually increases the surface roughness and, unlessspecial maintenance procedures are employed, this should be taken into account when selecting anappropriate value of.
NoteJune The drag and lift characteristics of a cylinder placed near a plane surface. Other examples are pipes andstruts inside ducts but in these cases the confinement effects due to the proximity of the duct walls must betaken into account see ESDU Uniform sand grains but not emery paper see Sketch B1.
These values are equivalent sand-grain roughness heights, the derivation of which is discussed inAppendix B. Lift and drag measurements on stranded cables. At subcritical Re the larger suction pressures on the upper surface due to the delayed boundary layerseparation cause the lift force to be positive i. The effects of the following parameters areparticularly important and can be taken into account when estimating data from this Item.
If significant VIV is anticipated, then drag coefficients may be increased significantly.
Line types: Drag & lift data
It may be assumed, in the absence of otherinformation, that the maximum values apply for similarly shaped protrusions although the qualificationsnoted later for steps should be taken into account. This exerts aconsiderable influence on the pressure distribution and increases the flow-induced forces over thosepredicted using simple cross-flow theory.
ESDU provides data for estimating the mean forces and pressures induced by flow normal or inclined to a cylindrical structure of circular cross-section. The derivation of the method is described inSection 7.
The derivation of the method is described inSection 7. Further guidance on the estimation of 880025 distributions on finite-lengthcylinders is given in Reference 1. Please enter the message. Guidance on thisaspect is provided in Section 7. Council, UK, August This relationship is shown in Figure 2which has been derived from an analysis of data for cylinders with uniformly distributed roughness.

Of this total approximately will be the contribution acting on the shroud when the cylinderand shroud diameters are equal. Pressures and forces on a circular cylinder in a cross flow at high Reynolds number.
Mean forces, pressures and flow field velocities for circular cylindrical structures: The data apply when the effect of the flow around the free end or ends can be ignored i. However, in some design situations the velocity distribution in the flow field around, and away from, thecylinder surface is also required.
Tests on smooth and stranded wires inclined to the wind direction, and a comparison ofresults on stranded wires in air and water. ThisItem provides data for estimating the mean components of loading. For rough cylinders the effect is less marked, but remains significant. ESDU Esdh caused by friction in straight pipes with systematic roughnesselements.
The following data can be obtained from this data Item.

The drag coefficient of finite-aspect-ratio perforated circular cylinders. Drag measurements at high Reynolds numbers of a circular cylinder fitted with threehelical strakes. Theperforations in the cylinder act to reduce the tendency to shed strong vortices.
These data provide information for an idealised situation; in practice conditions maybe significantly different from this and in such circumstances the data should only be used as a guide.
If then the factor and steps 4 to 8 can be ignored. However, the Data Item can be used to provide guidance inascertaining the degree of additional roughness 8005 turbulence that would be required to generate theappropriate supercritical flow conditions in a wind-tunnel test. Post on Sep views. The parameters and represent the intensity and scale of the turbulence in the approaching flow Appendix A explains thephysical significance of these properties and typical values are given in Table Correction factors for the extreme cases where and 1.
ESDU Here and x is the distance from the origin of the turbulent boundary layer to the point atwhich is required but for the present application it can be taken as the distance from the leading edge ofthe plane surface. For supercritical flow the evidence is that this simple cross-flow theory underestimates orCN for relatively smooth two-dimensional cylinders and should not be used; Section 4.
ESDU provides additional information in the form of correction factors that can be essdu to these data to account for end effects and shear flow effects, such as those associated with cantilever structures in the non-uniform atmospheric wind. Since, to date, such measurements are few, this characterisationcannot, unfortunately, be generalised at present.
It may be defined as the ratio of Re for a smooth cylinder giving a specified valueof CD0 to Re for a rough cylinder in the same free-stream rsdu the same CD0, both measured in thetransition region following ReD ; in practice it is related to.
