A finite solid cylinder rotates inside a larger, fluid-filled cylindrical casing. The Stokes equation is solved by an efficient method using domain decomposition, eigenfunction expansion, and collection. The resistive torque is found as a function of the geometric parameters. The torque due to the rotation of a finite cylinder in an infinite fluid is extrapolated.
