Steady flow in a partially filled horizontal circular cylinder rotating rapidly about its symmetry axis is investigated experimentally. Radial boundary layer profiles of the azimuthal velocity in the neighborhood of the internal free surface are reported for a range of inverse Froude numbers and for two types of free surfaces. Results indicate good agreement with an existing theory.
