This article provides an analytical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for the case of the steady flow of an incompressible fluid between two uniformly co-rotating disks. The solution is derived from the asymptotical evolution of unknown components of velocity and pressure in a radial direction - in contrast to the Briter-Pohlhausen analytical solution, which is supported by simplified Navier-Stokes equations. The obtained infinite system of ordinary differential equations forms recurrent relations from which unknown functions can be calculated successively. The first and second approximations of solution are solved analytically and the third and fourth approximations of solutions are solved numerically. The numerical example demonstrates agreements with results obtained by other authors using different methods. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
