Static pressure measurements around a cylinder rotating about an orthogonal axis with and without superimposed crossflow are carried out by using a capacitance type differential pressure transducer in conjunction with a slip-ring apparatus. A coefficient of pressure (Cp ) is defined for the rotating cylinder and typical variations of Cp along its length and periphery are presented.
