    Can anyone recommend a good (peer reviewed) reference that discusses low Reynolds number flow around a cylinder? I'm specifically looking for derivations of the drag coefficient. The usual 'gold standard' references:

    Lamb (Hydrodynamics)
    http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF01540828#page-1

    are fairly difficult to parse, and these:

    http://arxiv.org/pdf/0901.3621.pdf

    are not peer-reviewed. Thanks in advance....
