This project further develops recent work which proposes a new theory that predicts the forces on slender bodies, and slender and thin wings. A steady, incompressible uniform field for high Reynolds numbers (although aerodynamically low-speed) is assumed, through which a slender body with elliptic cross-section moves at a steady constant velocity. The forces on this manoeuvring slender body through fluid at high Reynolds number have been determined in this work. The theory is developed within Oseen flow and models the viscous and vortex wake. The newly developed theory has been applied to cylinder bodies with elliptic cross-section and comparison with experiments and standard Alien and Perkins method has been made. The numerical analysis using ANSYS CFX has been done. The comparison between new theory, experimental results, and numerical analysis has also been done in this work. Xlll
