The incompressible viscous shear flow past a circular cylinder is analyzed by solving two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations and pressure Poisson equation using a finite difference method. The shear flow is calculated for Reynolds numbers from 80 to 1000, and shear parameters up to 0.25. The numerical results indicate that the vortex shedding persists at the shear parameters up to 0.25 for the present Reynolds number range. The Strouhal number and the drag coefficient decrease as the shear parameter increases. There is a transverse force acting from the high velocity side toward the low velocity side in the shear flow.
