The present note is concerned with the exact non-axisymmetric solutions for the flow over a rotating disk. The governing non-axisymmetric flow equations of motion generate exact flow solutions from which analytic expressions for the vorticity, shear stresses, flow/thermal layer thicknesses and rate of heat transfer are obtained. The effects of Brinkman number, heat generation/absorption as well as thermal radiation on the temperature field can be better pursued from the extracted formulae.
