Onsager’s pancake equation for the fluid dynamics of a gas centrifuge is modified for the case of centrifuges with baffles which render the flow domain doubly connected. A finite element algorithm is used for solving the mathematical model and to compute numerical examples for flow fields induced by thermal boundary conditions and by mass injection and extraction.
