A Note on Spin up Effects in a Rotating Mixture
The centrifugal batch separation of an initially homogeneous mixture of particles and fluid is considered in containers of finite length for which end‐wall effects can be important. The “full” nonlinear theory can be reduced to the determination of an appropriate analytic function. Vortex‐line stretching due to suction into the Ekman layers counteracts the baroclinic generation of vorticity caused by the pressure and density fields.
