The rotationally symmetric flow of a viscous fluid in the presence of an infinite rotating disk

  • M. H. Rogers (a1) and G. N. Lance (a2) (a3)

Abstract

The flow produced by an infinite rotating disk when the fluid at infinity is in a state of solid rotation is investigated numerically. When the fluid at infinity is rotating in the same sense as the disk, physically acceptable solutions exist in all cases. When the fluid at infinity is rotating in the opposite sense to that of the disk, the only physically acceptable solutions appear to be those in which there is a uniform suction present acting through the disk.
