Paper of Matt Turner on rotating fluids published in Physical Review Fluids

The paper “The steady flow of one uniformly rotating fluid layer above another immiscible uniformly rotating fluid layer” co-authored by Patrick Weidman (University of Colorado) and Matt Turner has been accepted for publication in Physical Review Fluids. The paper presents an exact solution to the axisymmetric Navier-Stokes equations for both co- and counter-rotating flows in the presence of a flat fluid interface. A schematic of the flow is shown left.¬† The final-form version of the paper can be found¬†here.
