A model used in calculating potential-field effects; a small-diameter horizontal cylinder so long that the ends of the cylinder do not produce any effects. The model is equivalent to a horizontal line whose mass per unit of length is ρA, where ρ is the density contrast and A is the cross-sectional area of the cylinder.
