The asymmetric Stokes flow in a circular cylinder due to a rotlet is considered. This is a model for nanotube flow induced by a small rotating particle. The 3D Stokes and continuity equations are reduced to boundary problems for two scalar functions. Analytical solutions in terms of the Fourier transform is obtained.
Keywords: Stokes flow, rotlet.
