The flow of viscoplastic material between two concentric spheres

  • S. F. Kuznetsov
  • A. D. Chernyshev


The motion of a viscoplastic medium between two concentric spheres is considered upon rotation of one sphere with constant angular velocity. This problem is solved by an heuristic iterative method. The boundary of the stagnation zones is found and its specific shape is shown. The flow characteristics versus the parameter of the medium are obtained.
