Plane Couette flow with spanwise system rotation shows structures of streamwise-oriented roll cells that arise due to the instability by the Coriolis force when the system rotation is in the opposite direction to the mean flow vorticity. The momentum transport caused by such roll cell structures makes the flow tend to exhibit zero absolute vorticity. In the present study, stereoscopic PIV measurements in the rotating plane Couette flow were carried out in order to further illuminate the vortex structures and transport phenomena in this flow. The Reynolds stresses and some terms of its transport equation were evaluated to discuss the transport phenomena caused by the coherent structure. Furthermore, the wall shear stress was evaluated based on the measurement results of the Reynolds and viscous shear stresses and its variation with the system rotation rate is also presented.
