ADDED MOMENT OF INERTIA OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL CYLINDERS

This paper treats the classical problem of a two-dimensional body rotating in an ideal unbounded fluid. The added moment of inertial is derived, after mapping the body profile onto a straight line and using Hilbert techniques to solve the resulting boundary-value problem in the transformed plane. Specific geometries considered are a circle with symmetric fins, and a square. The method of solution differs from that which is commonly used, and the present results are simpler or more accurate by comparison with earlier works.
