Abstract : The Newton Raphson technique has been employed to solve the set of non-linear equations governing the problem of flow and heat transfer from an enclosed rotating disc/. The disc called rotor is subjected to uniform injection while the top of the housing called stator, to an equal suction. The results for small Reynold numbers are found in good agreement to that obtained earlier by series solution. The radial and transverse velocity profiles for large Reynolds have been plotted in the regions of no recirculation. The effect of net radial inflow and outflow on temperature in the no-recirculation region has also been studied. The method is significant in this respect that it yields satisfactory results for large Reynolds numbers.
