Abstract

LAMINAR flow and heat transfer between a stationary and a rotating disk has been analyzed numerically. The fluid enters the domain through a circular opening in the center of the stationary disk and flows radially outward. Unlike most of the earlier analyses, which were of the boundary-layer type, the present study deals with the solution of the complete Navier-Stokes equations and the prediction of the entire recirculating flow. Results show that, in the presence of rotation, the flow is indeed quite complex and is characterized by recirculating zones near the inlet and the exit. © 1985 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., All rights reserved.
