In this paper we present the aspect of inertial oscillation typically observed in the spin-up of fluids at low Rossby numbers in a circular cylinder. Numerical computations for the quasi three-dimensional equation as well as one-dimensional equation are performed to estimate the predictability of the one-dimensional equation with Ekman pumping/suction models. It is assumed that the discrepancy between the two results may be attributed to the inertial oscillation The detailed analysis to the numerical results reveals that the axial plane is dominated by a comparatively strong oscillatory flows caused by the inertial oscillation. In view of the fact that the time-averaged flow field however agrees to the Taylor-Proudman theorem, it is recommended that further analysis is needed to obtain an improved one-dimensional model like the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equation for turbulent flows.
