An earlier analysis of turbulent flow along a cylinder in a uniform stream by White is corrected. The analysis has been extended to include turbulent flow along a cylinder extruding through an orifice into a fluid at rest. The analyses are compared with the available data for drag and, except in the case of the cylinder extruding into a fluid at rest, the comparison is reasonably encouraging.
