Effect of uniform motion of a circular cylinder in the dusty gas otherwise at rest at infinity is discussed. The dust particles are assumed to have small relaxation time. An equation for the mass concentration of dust near the cylinder is derived and solved analytically using a potential solution of gas flow at large Reynolds number. Particles do not collide with the cylinder until the stokes number neta is greater than 1/8, if we assume that the gas flow is unchanged by the presence of dust particles.
