Forcespinning™ is a novel method that makes use of centrifugal forces to produce nanofibers rapidly and at high yields. A 2D computational Forcespinning™ viscous fluid dynamics model is developed, that improves on previous models. The fluid dynamics equations are solved using themethod of multiple scales along with the finite difference method, and including slender-jet theory assumptions. The effects that the Reynolds (Re) number has on the resulting fiber trajectory, radius, and tangential velocity are presented.
