Asymmetric flow between parallel rotating disks Academic Article uri icon


  • Flows occurring between parallel rotating disks have recently been generalized by Parter & Rajagopal (1984) to include solutions that are not axisymmetric. They prove existence, whereas in the present paper we report, for the first time, numerical results for two cases: (i) rotation about a common axis, and (ii) rotation about distinct axes. Calculations were performed for two values of the Ekman number E = v /d2ω at the relative disk rotations of s= 0.8, s= 0 and s= 0.25, where s= ω2/ω1. © 1984, Cambridge University Press.
