Mathematical and numerical solution is presented for problem of determining aerodynamic forces on harmonically oscillating, cylindrical shell within framework of classical, linearized, potential flow theory; subsonic speeds are emphasized; method of solution is outlined, and numerical results are presented; comparisons of results are made with those of (generalized) "slender body" theory to indicate where this simpler theory may be used with confidence.
