Fluid in a rotating cylinder
I have a closed cylinder that has 10% of its volume filled with water. The cylinder can rotate at low and high speeds and I'd like to know how I can go about describing the behaviour of the fluid in the rotating cylinder at those speeds. Any suggestions on boundary conditions and information on velocity distributions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Fluid in a rotating cylinder
I think a similar question was asked here sometimes ago. It has very simple analytical solution and was given in a text book. If you search through this forum, you should be able to find the exact answer.
