General Characteristic of Rotating-Disk Systems -- Modelling of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer in Rotating-Disk Systems -- Free Rotating Disk -- Unsteady Laminar Heat Transfer of a Free Rotating Disk -- External Flow Imposed over a Rotating Disk -- Outward Underswirled and Overswirled Radial Flow Between Parallel Co-rotating Disks -- Laminar Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer in a Gap Between a Disk and a Cone that Touches the Disk with Its Apex -- Heat and Mass Transfer of a Free Rotating Disk for the Prandtl and Schmidt Numbers Larger than Unity.
The book describes results of investigations of a series of convective heat-and-mass transfer problems in rotating-disk systems, namely, over free rotating disks, under conditions of transient heat transfer, solid-body rotation of fluid, orthogonal flow impingement onto a disk, swirl radial flow between parallel co-rotating disks, in cone-disk systems and for Prandtl and Schmidt numbers larger than one. Methodology used included integral methods, self-similar and approximate analytical solutions, as well as CFD. The book is aimed at the professional audience of academic researchers, industrial R&D engineers, university lecturers and graduate/postgraduate students working in the area of rotating-disk systems.
