An analytical solution of the unsteady Navier–Stokes equations is obtained for the flow due to non-coaxial rotations of an oscillating porous disk and a fluid at infinity, rotating about an axis parallel to the axes of rotation of the disk through a fixed point. The velocity distributions and the shear stresses at the disk are obtained for three different cases when the frequency parameter is greater than, equal to or less than the rotation parameter. The flow has a boundary layer structure even in the case of blowing at the disk.
