We present a combined experimental and theoretical study of the trajectory of a large solid cylindrical disc suspended within a fluid-filled rotating cylindrical vessel. The experimental set-up is relevant to tissue-engineering applications where a disc-shaped porous scaffold is seeded with cells to be cultured, placed within a bioreactor filled with nutrient-rich culture medium, which is then rotated in a vertical plane to keep the growing tissue construct suspended in a state of "free fall....Expand abstract
