Taylor-Couette Flow of Ferrofluid: Spin Field and Spin Boundary Condition Effects
We solve for the steady flow solutions of a ferrofluid between concentric cylinders (the Taylor-Couette problem) and consider the effects of the spin field and the spin boundary conditions on the flow. In particular, our model includes the full spin equations. We analyze families of solutions for a range of realistic flow parameters and radial magnetic fields. Particular attention is paid to regimes in which different spin boundary conditions lead to significantly different flow profiles.
