ROTATING FLUIDS

   The figures illustrate silicone drops rising slowly along the rotation axis of a rapidly rotating tank of water rotating at 60 rpm. Note the blocked regions, or`Taylor columns' accompanying the drop motion. A theoretical and experimental study of axial drop motion in rapidly rotating fluids is presented in Bush, Stone & Bloxham (1995).
