	  abstract     = {Flows developed between two parallel disks have
many engineering applications. Two types of non-swirling flows can
be generated in such a domain. One is purely source flow in disc type
domain (outward flow). Other is purely sink flow in disc type domain
(inward flow). This situation often appears in some turbo machinery
components such as air bearings, heat exchanger, radial diffuser,
vortex gyroscope, disc valves, and viscosity meters. The main goal of
this paper is to show the mesh convergence, because mesh
convergence saves time, and economical to run and increase the
efficiency of modeling for both sink and source flow. Then flow field
is resolved using a very fine mesh near-wall, using enhanced wall
treatment. After that we are going to compare this flow using
standard k-epsilon, RNG k-epsilon turbulence models. Lastly
compare some experimental data with numerical solution for sink
flow. The good agreement of numerical solution with the
experimental works validates the current modeling.
