The tangential vorticity function, circulation and meridian stream that form in a closed rotating cylinder are analyzed. The cylinder has a rotating bottom whereas the lateral surface and the top are fixed. The results are presented as graphs that compare the mentioned functions for different aspect ratios. The comparing aspect ratios: 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0. In comparing the 2.0 aspect ratio versus the 1.0 aspect ratio; it is found that the stream function diminished a 29.63%, whereas the circulation does not change and the vorticity decreases 65.91%. On the other hand comparison of the cylinder with aspect ratio 0.5 against the one with aspect ratio 1; gives that the stream function increases 1.4 times; that the circulation increases 3.45 times and the vorticirty increases 0.7 times. The analysis was made for a 3 x 104 Reynolds number. The mentioned results give an indication of the influence of the aspect ratio as to the motion inside the cylinder. Further investigation is required in order to apply the results to particular conditions of mixing or another practical application.
