Przepływ cieczy lepkiej w szczelinie między wirującymi powierzchniami obrotowymi

Edward Walicki
This paper contains formulae which define such parameters of the steady laminar flow of viscous fluid between rotating surfaces of revolution as the velocity components and pressure. The linearized equations of motion of the viscous fluid flow for axial symmetry in the intrinsic curvilinear orthogonal coordinate system are used. The solutions of the equations of motion have been illustrated by examples of fluid flow through the slot of stable thickness between rotating and fixed conical surfaces, and between rotating and fixed spherical surfaces. The flow through the slot of variable thickness formed by conical surfaces with various angles of divergence has also been examined.
