Analytical and numerical results for the nonstationary rotating disk flow
Abstract
This paper deals with the timedependent flow due to an infinite rotating disk. The NavierStokes equations are transformed by von Karman's similarity approach. The resulting equations have been studied both numerically and analytically for two cases: (1) the flow due to a disk whose angular velocity abruptly changes sign, and (2) the oscillating disk flow. Some numerical results are compared with the outcome of the analysis.
