We performed laboratory tests of a smooth rigid cylinder oscillating in still water, with L/D in the range 3.3–26.2, Keulegan-Carpenter numbers KC = 2 − 7, and β = 1000 − 6000. Within these ranges, drag coefficients are seen to increase with increasing KC, decrease with increasing β, and decrease with increasing L/D. The values, especially with high L/D, are somewhat lower than those reported by Sarpkaya.
