Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We investigate steady two-dimensional °ow of a thin ¯lm of °uid with temperature-dependent vis-cosity on a uniformly heated or cooled horizontal cylinder, which may be stationary or rotating about its axis. We show that increasing (decreasing) the ambient temperature has the e®ect of making the ¯lm thinner (thicker). For °ow on a rotating cylinder we determine the critical mass Mc beyond which a continuous solution is not possible. Also we show that at large Biot number the ¯lm thickness (but not the °uid velocity) can be obtained from that in the isothermal case by a simple re-scaling
