An appraisal of measurements of drag and inertia coefficients for large scale circular cylinders, carried out by researchers at Imperial College, as part of the Behaviour of fixed and compliant offshore structures managed programme. The coefficients were measured under a range of experimental conditions including planar oscillatory flow, laboratory tests with vertical cylinders in regular and random waves and experiments on vertical cylinders in the sea.
