In Couette flow of a viscous incompressible fluid, I looked at solving this problem. As a followup, here are some visualizations of the velocity field as the outer cylinder angular velocity is changed.

The Mathematica workbook that was used to generate the figures is also available for more direct play, and includes slider controls for the cylinder radii and angular velocities.
