Abstract A formulation in terms of a Fredholm integral equation of the first kind is given for the axisymmetric problem of a solid rotating in a bounded viscous fluid whose surface is contaminated with an immiscible surfactant film. The particular case of a rotating thin circular disk immersed in a semi-infinite body of fluid is studied in detail, the problem being reduced to the solution of a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. This equation is solved both asymptotically and… CONTINUE READING
