The method used in the classical paper by Zielke to estimate the unsteady component of shear stress in unsteady pipe flows is revisited. It is found that the method is undesirably sensitive to the size of the integration time step. The sensitivity is shown to be caused dominantly by the first term in the integration when inadequate allowance is made for the infinite value of the weighting function. A simple method of avoiding the error without requiring the use of small grid sizes is presented.
