Milne-Thomson’s circle theorem is used to study the characteristics of the two-dimensional irrotational flow around a horizontal cylinder under long-crested waves. Even when the cylinder diameter is small compared with the wavelength, the circumferential velocity and pressure distributions are unsteady and differ markedly from those corresponding to uniform ambient flow with similar velocity and acceleration vectors.
