Asymptotic formulation for incompressible fluid flow between two adjacent rotating coaxial disks
Abstract
An asymptotic formulation of the motion of an incompressible fluid between two coaxial adjacent rotating disks is obtained by taking into account two significant parameters. It leads to the distinguishing of three classes of flow. In one case it is shown that there exists a central zone which behaves as an ideal fluid rotating with constant angular velocity and two boundary layers where the flow is governed by equations of the Bodewadt type.
