Abstract

The flow induced by an impermeable flat surface executing orthogonal stretching and orthogonal shearing in a rotating fluid system is investigated. Both the stretching and shearing are linear in the coordinates. An exact similarity reduction of the Navier–Stokes equations gives rise to a pair of nonlinearly-coupled ordinary differential equations governed by three parameters. In this study we set one parameter and analyze the problem which leads to flow for an impermeable surface with shearing and stretching due to velocity u along the x-axis of equal strength a while the shearing and stretching due to velocity v along the y-axis of equal strength b. These solutions depend on two parameters—a Coriolis (rotation) parameter (Formula presented.) and a stretching/shearing ratio (Formula presented.). A symmetry in solutions is found for (Formula presented.). The exact solution for (Formula presented.) and the asymptotic behavior of solutions for (Formula presented.) are determined and compared with numerical results. Oscillatory solutions are found whose strength increases with increasing values of (Formula presented.). It is shown that these solutions tend to the well-known Ekman solution as (Formula presented.).
