Batchelor vortex

In fluid dynamics, Batchelor vortices, first described by George Batchelor in a 1964 article, have been found useful in analyses of airplane vortex wake hazard problems.

The mathematical model for the velocity in the Θ direction in the Batchelor vortex is:

V_\Theta\ (r) = \frac{\Gamma}{2\pi r} \left ( 1-e^{-\frac{r^2}{{r_c}^2}} \right )
