Power generation and refrigeration accomplished by means of rotating or reciprocating machinery. One of the basic elements of rotating machinery is the rotating channel system. With the desire for ever increasing efficiency in power generation and refrigeration, higher or lower operating temperatures are achieved. It has provided motivation for the pursuit of knowledge on heat transfer and fluid flow characteristics. This paper reviews the literature pertinent to studies of fluid flow and/or heat transfer in channel flows subjected to radial rotation, parallel rotation, and coaxial revolution. Special problems unique to rotating systems are discussed and future study areas are suggested.
