Abstract

A set of problems concerning the behaviour of a suddenly disturbed ideal floating zone is considered. Mathematical techniques of asymptotic expansions arc used to solve these problems. It is seen that many already available solutions, most of them concerning liquids enclosed in cavities, will be regarded as starting approximations which are valid except in the proximity of the free surface which laterally bounds the floating zone. In particular, the problem of the linear spin-up of an initially cylindrical floating zone is considered in some detail. The presence of a recircuiating fluid pattern near the free surface is detected. This configuration is attributed to the interplay between Coriolis forces and the azimuthal component of the viscous forces.
