Abstract

The problem of slow draining of incompressible fluid from a rotating cylindrical vessel is considered. Transient effects, internal viscosity, boundary friction and finite cylindrical boundaries are included. In addition a tornado model formulated by Turner is solved and compared with some experiments on rotating turbulence of Hopfinger, Browand & Gagne.
