The purpose of this paper is to examine the differences and/or similarities in some of the existing data on the effect of roughness on cylinders in sinusoidally oscillating planar flow, to reflect upon the fluid-mechanical and/or facility-dependent causes of the differences, and to make some recommendations regarding the design and execution of future database as well as concept-base experiments.
