Flow Near an Infinite Rotating Disk

Flow Near an Infinite Rotating Disk
The steady flow resulting from an infinite disk rotating at a constant angular velocity in a Newtonian viscous fluid which would otherwise be at rest is considered. The viscous drag of the rotating surface will set up a swirling flow, with the fluid at the surface... read more

Laminar Flow in a Squeeze Bearing

Laminar Flow in a Squeeze Bearing
Squeeze bearing is one of a variety of non-contact bearings that uses squeeze-film flow effects in order to support a given load without contact between the bearing and its underlying surfaces.  In the squeeze bearing variants analyzed here, rectangular plate and... read more

Flow in a Diminishing Narrow Gap - One Cell Model

Flow in a Diminishing Narrow Gap - One Cell Model
Flow within narrow gaps is common in the field of lubrication. Hydrostatic bearings support large loads by producing a thin film of fluid between two surfaces/parts in relative motion. Diminishing gap between two surfaces filled with a lubricating fluid generates high... read more

Lubrication in a Narrow Gap (Slipper Bearing) - One Cell Model

Lubrication in a Narrow Gap (Slipper Bearing) - One Cell Model
Slipper bearings, also known as tilted pad thrust bearings can support large loads by setting up a pressure gradient within a narrow passage. It consists of a horizontal plate moving with a velocity U relative to another plate at a slight inclination to produce a... read more

Viscous Flow in an Annular Passage

Viscous Flow in an Annular Passage
The steady state viscous flow in the passage between two concentric cylinders is considered. The inner cylinder is a solid and the outer cylinder is hollow thus creating the passage. Pressure difference between the inlet and outlet sets up a steady flow pattern that... read more

Laminar Flow in a Pipe

Laminar Flow in a Pipe
Laminar flows in pipes typically occur at Reynolds numbers less than 2000 and are also known as the Hagen-Poiseuille flow. When flow fully develops, the velocity profile across the channel would be parabolic and the pressure drops linearly along the length of the... read more

Laminar Flow in a Channel

Laminar Flow in a Channel
Two flat plates of infinite width are placed in parallel to form a channel. Laminar flows in such channels are also known as the Plane Poiseuille flow.  When flow fully develops, the velocity profile across the channel would be parabolic and the pressure drops... read more

Thermal Boundary Layer over a Flat Plate

Thermal Boundary Layer over a Flat Plate
A thin heated plate is placed in a flow field so that it is perfectly aligned with the free streamlines thus allowing the flow to form hydraulic and thermal boundary layers. This boundary layer flow has been studied extensively and is well described in many thermo-... read more

Laminar Boundary Layer over a Flat Plate

Laminar Boundary Layer over a Flat Plate
A thin semi-infinite plate is placed in a uniform unidirectional stream, so that it is perfectly aligned with the streamlines. The fluid forms a boundary layer near the wall where viscous forces dominate. This boundary layer flow has been studied extensively and is... read more
