For many years the flow of air around right circular cylinders has been the subject of frequent investigations. In order to find the surface loading on solid floating tops as well as wind effects on exposed liquid surfaces, tests were conducted in the 6 ft x 6 ft wind tunnel of the Aerospace Engineering Department at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. The results are presented herein.
