This paper deals with fluid forces induced by an oscillating rigid circular cylinder in a fluid initially at rest. The amplitude of the imposed movement is assumed sufficiently small so that no wake is formed. The objective of the present paper is to review different theoretical methods to evaluate fluid forces. A wide variety of conditions is considered, from inviscid, compressible flows in infinite fluid domains, to viscous, incompressible and strongly confined ones. A special care is taken to underline the limits of the simplified models regarding real fluid effects, such as three-dimensional centrifugal instabilities. This review is related to a study whose ultimate aim is to predict dynamic fluid load during a typical shock encountered in the environment of a military ship.
