||This report concerns the application of fluid dynamics (CFD) to fluid problems in the offshore industry. To identify current capabilities of CFD, the flow around a stationary circular cylinder at large Reynolds numbers was modelled using a commercial CFD computer programme. There was good agreement between computer calculations and experimental data; variations in drag were correctly modelled and effects of turbulence were correctly represented. The current status of CFD and its application to offshore design is discussed.
