Tornado

Description

This book is devoted to the fundamental problems of investigation of free concentrated vortices. The possibilities of mathematical modeling of whirlwinds (tornadoes) are discussed; it states and solves, for the first time in domestic and global practice, the problem of physical (laboratory) modeling of whirlwinds without using mechanical whirling devices. The issues of generation and stability of free vortices and methods for controlling their characteristics are analyzed. The possibilities for affecting atmospheric whirling formations of various scales are described. The book is designed for scientists investigating hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer of vortex flows, as well as for university teachers, students and post-graduate students.
