title = "The forces on a cylinder oscillating sinusoidaiiy in water: II, further experiments",

abstract = "This paper deals with wave forces on a single cylinder. The wave forces are simulated in a laboratory by oscillating a cylinder sinusoidally in water otherwise at rest. This effort is a parametric study relating a force coefficient to such variables as instantaneous Reynolds number, period parameter, and d/√vT. The force is not decomposed into drag and inertia components, but is represented as a continuous function of the previously mentioned parameters. The idea is to determine how the acceleration affects the force. Considerable deviation from a Reynolds-number only dependence is noted for low Reynolds numbers. The steady-flow drag coefficient value is asymptotically obtained for large Reynolds numbers.",
