Abstract: We consider the adiabatic tangential flow of an incompressible Newtonian fluid with temperature-dependent viscosity between two coaxial cylinders, one of which is rotating, while the other is kept stress-free. We show that every classical solution approaches, as time goes to infinity, a uniform rigid body rotation at fixed temperature, thus establishing the stabilizing role of dissipation. The proof is based on a priori estimates, obtained with the help of certain identities for solutions of the governing equations.
