Numerical study of laminar swirled flow in an annular channel


The effect of stream rotation on the velocity distribution in an annular channel is studied by the numerical method. The degrees of swirling corresponding to the initiation of stream separation are presented as functions of the Reynolds number for different values of the geometrical parameter of the channel.
