Abstract : This paper contains the results of one phase of research program designed to investigate transfer phenomena in rotating systems. In this phase of the work mass transfer rates from a disk rotating at various speed in an infinite environment in laminar and turbulent flow were measured and compared with the results of an analysis which is also applicable to heat transfer. The effect of placing a stationary surface at various distances parallel to the rotating disk surface was investigated experimentally in the laminar flow regime. Some unusual observations of flow patterns resulting from transitional Goertler Vortices and from some as yet unexplained turbulent vortex phenomena are also reported.
