Vortex Flow in Nature and Technology is the first account of the vortex concept and its increasing significance in science and technology. From aerodynamics and hydraulics to geophysics, philosophy, history, and mythology, the book covers all aspects of vortex flows and provides a non-mathematical introduction to vorticity dynamics. It gives, in particular, information on vortex shedding, instability, and breakdown and describes many vortex types including wing-tip vortices, dust cyclones, whirlpools, Gulf-Stream eddies, tornadoes, hurricanes, and galactic spirals.
