Hydrodynamics on an Oscillating Cylinder by Morison’s Equation

The hydro loads on a circular cylinder in an unsteady viscous flow can be determined by Morison’s Equation, a combination of an inertial term and a drag term. where are the density, mass coefficient, drag coefficient, displacement, projected area (to vertical plane), and fluid speed, respectively. For linear waves, the range of drag coefficient is …
