An analytical study is made of the steady-state velocity field induced in a liquid by a rotating cone. As a consequence of the experimental observations, velocity functions which very accurately define the flow have been developed. The functions are of such a nature that the center line of a vortex and the flow about the center line are accurately described. The boundary conditions at the surface of the rotating cone and at the fixed boundaries are satisfied. Also the continuity equation is satisfied. Finally, the stress field in the fluid has been studied in terms of the velocity functions.
