Turbulent flow in a hard disk drive model which contained two disks and a RW (read-and-write) arm was numerically analyzed at a disk rotation Reynolds number of about 105. The evaluation of the fluctuating torque revealed that the RW arm may be oscillated at a frequency which had only weak correlation with the disk rotation speed. The fluctuating pressure was stronger on the leeward surface of the RW than that of the windward. It was further indicated that the fluctuating torque on the RW arm was weakly correlated with the surface pressure fluctuation on the shroud wall.
