Abstract : An understanding of radial flow between confined boundaries is of practical importance in the design of radial diffusers and air bearings. This study presents a combined experimental and theoretical analysis of radial flow, without swirl, between parallel discs using air at incompressible speeds. Emphasis is place on the pres sure distribution sufficiently far downstream of the channel inlet for the entry conditions to be unimportant. However, a study is also made of the main features of the flow near the inlet, particularly within the annular separation bubble. (Author)
