In this study, the flow characteristics of air around a circular cylinder were determined by two means by analytical solution of the Navier- Stokes equations, and actual measurement of the flow itself. A DISA LD 5586 laser doppler anemometer system was employed to measure normal v and parallel u velocity components of a laminar flow regime about a three-sixteenths inch diameter cylinder mounted in a 32 x 45 inch wind tunnel Reynolds number approximately 40.
