Comments on "Numerical studies of viscous flow around circular cylinders"

Keller, H. B.


It is claimed by Hamielec and Raal(1) that their computations improve upon the extrapolation procedure of Keller and Takami(2) which is considered "inadequate" and "could presumably lead to appreciable errors." However, the authors clearly do not understand the procedure of Keller and Takami or else do not understand the nature of Imai's asymptotic solution, or both.
