## Homework Statement

## The Attempt at a Solution

Hey! Well, I don't really know where to start, even.. Heck, I think the problem is formulated pretty badly (with width, I assume they mean length of the cylinder?)..

Anyway, I think I can solve the problem with the following steps:

1) I can probably assume inviscid flow.

2) I need to figure out the velocity-distribution around the cylinder, and then the pressure distribution. I think I will somehow need to superimpose a vortex and linear-flow?

3) Calculate the difference in pressure between the outside and the inside.

4) Calculate the force on each bolt.

My problem is 2: I simply have no clue what to do. Please help?
