Abstract: This paper deals with the response of an incompressible laminar boundary layer on a circular cylinder due to small periodic velocity fluctuations. These fluctuations may arise from the motion of the cylinder or be contained within the free stream. A perturbation solution employing the method of matched asymptotic expansions is given for the case of high reduced frequencies. These results are compared to a numerical solution valid for any frequency. In addition, the solution is compared to the classical result of Glauert [7] valid only at the stagnation point.
