Question: 1 a very long shaft of radius r rotates inside...

Question details

1. A very long shaft of radius R, rotates inside of a stationary housing of radius Ro. The angular velocity of the shaft if w. Heat is transfered so that the temperature is fixed at Tu for both the shaft and housing. c) Show that the velocity distribution reduces to the planar Couette flow solution if Ri is large and the gap thin. (Hint: You may find the following change of variable helpful r- Riy.) Stationary Housing LU Fluid ShaftRo Figure 1: Diagram for Problem 2
