This Data Item introduces the subject of flow in applications where rotating machinery components induceflow rotation. There are many examples of rotating and swirling flow in engineering such as the flowbetween a stationary disc and a rotating disc, in a gas turbine engine or turbocharger, and the flow in anannulus with a rotating inner cylinder, between the armature and stator of an electric motor.
The aim of this Data Item is to introduce the phenomena involved in rotating flows and to provide the readerwith guidance and techniques for modelling specific rotating flow applications. The flow applicationsconsidered in this Data Item relate to disc and cylindrical geometries, i.e. rotating discs, cylinders andcavities, predominantly in steady-state, stable flow conditions. The correlations provided are based onanalytical, experimental and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling of the flow and can be usedin parametric design studies and optimisation.

Item Type: Reports and working papers (Discussion Paper)
Additional Information: This item provides key correlations for applications where rotating machinery components induce flow rotation. Included are correlations critical to the modelling of: rotating discs in both gas turbine engines and other applications such as disc drives; gas turbine engine rotating cavities; rotating shafts; cylinders; and annuli. The item was produced for the Engineering Sciences Data Unit and was extensively reviewed by four panel meetings chaired by Dr J A Eaton, National University of Ireland, Galway with panel members from Rolls-Royce plc, Derby, Nexia Solutions, BHR Group Ltd, Schlumberger Cambridge Research, Cambridge University, Atkins Process and the University of Manchester.
