A Theoretical and Experimental Study of Laminar Flow Between a Stationary Porous Disk and a Rotating Nonporous Disk,
TENNESSEE UNIV KNOXVILLE DEPT OF ENGINEERING MECHANICS
Pagination or Media Count:
Laminar flow of a fluid flowing radially outward in the gap between a stationary porous disk and a parallel rotating nonporous disk, through which the fluid is injected, was studied theoretically and experimentally. The special case with both disks stationary was also included. Special theoreted attention was given to the range of injection Reynolds number and rotational parameter needed for comparison with experimental pressure distributions and resistance torques. The experiments were carried out with air flowing between disks 5 inches in diameter. Author
