Ecoulement visqueux entre deux cones coaxiaux

A numerical method of resolution of laminar incompressible flows in cones of revolution is proposed by asymptotic expansions in powers of 1/r (r radius vector).

Remarks on linearity allow to calculate all wanted terms, function after function, by fourth-order Runge-Kutta process.

Two examples are selected: the flow between two symmetric cones and one between a cone and a plane.

The study of the flow between two symmetric cones as a function of the aperture angle reveals the existence of two patterns separated by a discontinuity at approximately 156°.
